Another full event, the End of Life Symposium CEU, at Piedmont Hospital

Written by Anne McSweeney

On 5/11, about 170 social workers, case managers, nurses, chaplains and other healthcare professionals learned about End of Life Care at our "End of Life Symposium Part 2" at Piedmont's Richard Rich Auditorium.  Our keynote speaker, Cameron Svendsen, LCSW,  joined us from AZ and was able to both educate and entertain the participants on Family Dynamics, Ethics and Cultural Diversity in End of Life Care.  Following these presentations, we were fortunate to have Dr. Paul DeSandre, Attending Faculty from Emory Healthcare Hospice & Palliative Care to present on discussing the prognosis at the End of Life with patients and families.  Finally, we ended the day with a dynamic multidisciplinary panel discussion about helping patients and families at the very end of life.
