The Conversation Project

Wednesday, July 19, 2017 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This event does not repeat

Description

Did you know that 90% of people say talking with their loved ones about end-of-life care is important, but only 27% have actually done so? Last year we began offering “Being Mortal” community events that explore the relationship doctors have with patients as they are nearing the end of life, based on Atul Gawande’s book and FRONTLINE documentary, both named “Being Mortal.”

We’ll soon be kicking off community events utilizing the tools from The Conversation Project. It helps initiate open and honest conversations with loved ones before a medical crisis happens, giving everyone a shared understanding of what matters most to each person at the end of life. If you’d like to learn how to facilitate community events on this topic as a VNA volunteer, we’ll be hosting a Train the Trainer event on July 19 from 2-4 pm in partnership with Dallas Area Gerontological Society at our VNA Haggerty Center, 1440 W. Mockingbird Lane. Email events@vnatexas.org to reserve your spot or find out more information.
