RWJ Hamilton’s Department of Pastoral Care & Training continues our 2018 series of educational programs for religious leaders in our community with a program focusing on the difficult decisions surrounding end-of-life medical treatment.

Our discussion will be informed by the brief film "Anna's Story", produced by Atlantic Health & Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of NJ. The dialog following the film will introduce participants to key tools that can be used to facilitate end-of-life planning discussions. Chaplain Ted Taylor and Deborah Levine, MPH, Director of Community Health at the New Jersey Health Care Quality
Institute, will lead the discussion.

The following issues will be addressed:

  • Understanding the crisis that families and clinicians may encounter when faced with EOL treatment.
  • Gaining insight into the resources available to assist in advanced care planning.
  • Identifying the ethical / moral issues raised by end-of-life (EOL) medical care.

A certificate of attendance for 2 contact hours will be given to all who attend.
