An Ethical Framework for Decision-Making in Hospice Care – 1.0 Credit

Speaker
Speaker Name and Title:
Timothy W. Kirk, PhD
Ethics Consultant 
MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care

Funding Disclosure: No commercial funding has been accepted for the activity

Purpose:
Over 35% of all persons who die in the U.S. each year and almost 50% of the persons over age 65 who die in the U.S. each year receive hospice care in their final weeks of life. Most hospice patients receive care in the place they call “home” by a nurse-led interdisciplinary team, a very different experience than receiving care in a hospital by a physician-led team. However, most of the principles, frameworks, and resources in U.S. health care ethics have been developed by and for health care professionals working in hospitals. This webinar explores the core principles and values of the hospice philosophy of care, and presents an ethical framework specifically designed for use in U.S. hospice care.

Objectives:

    1. Describe the nature of ethics
    2. Explain core elements of the hospice philosophy of care
    3. Identify questions of ethical significance in hospice practice
    4. Apply a hospice ethics framework to clinical practice

Target Audience: palliative care specialists, pain specialists, primary care providers, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses with a specialty in palliative care/hospice, allied health professionals, fellows, residents, and medical students.
