- "Best Care Possible" participants
On June 16, over 120 physicians, clinicians, and faith leaders attended the Hospice Giving Foundation workshop “The Best Care Possible.” This workshop helped frame the importance of collaborating and working together – across disciplines – to improve the quality of end-of-life care.
Dr. Ira Byock, one of the nation’s foremost authorities in palliative care, was the keynote speaker. He, along with a panel of local experts, spoke with attendees about how to communicate with other professionals regarding end-of-life issues while still keeping the patient at the forefront. Attendees also learned about the local clinical, social, and spiritual palliative care and hospice services available to them.
This workshop is part of Hospice Giving Foundation’s commitment to convening the diverse members of the community to best serve patients and their families.
