Webcast: Aging and end-of-life care

AHCJ webcastReporting on end-of-life issues can be touchy for everyone involved and journalists need to handle issues of death and dying with sensitivity and skill. Understanding the processes, both clinical and legal, the nuances, and methods to manage such emotional issues with patients, families, and care providers, will result in more effective and powerful stories. 

Sharpen your reporting skills and learn more about treatment decision making, health care near the end of life, hospice and palliative care and ethical issues that accompany them.

Join us for a webcast on Wednesday Aug. 7 at 8 a.m. PDT/11 a.m. EDT. Our panelists will be V.J. Periyakoil, M.D., director of Palliative Care Education and Training at Stanford University; Nancy Berlinger, Ph.D, a research scholar at The Hastings Center and an author on end-of-life care; and Lisa Krieger  a San Jose Mercury News health reporter whose multi-part series on death and dying chronicled her personal experiences with the process.  Liz Seegert, AHCJ's topic leader on aging will moderate.
