[July 2022 Webinar] Awareness Talk: Living Well, Dying Well- Improving End of Life Care for Patients and Families

Introduction 

Living Well, Dying Well - Improving End of Life Care for Patients and Families

Imagine a situation where your doctor takes you aside, and gives you the bad news: Your loved one has less than a year left to live. What would you do?

Coming face to face with the unkind reality about the end of one's life can be emotionally distressing, not just for the patient, but for their loved ones as well. Most people would not know what to do, what steps to take, or even what to think.

Palliative care aims to lift the emotional burden and improve the quality of life for the patient and any of their loved ones involved. It eases family members into the process of accepting that the end of one's life is natural, and provides kind instruction on the things family members can do to make the patient's end-of-life experience better, in a meaningful way.

This talk will address stress management for caretakers and family members, by providing helpful tips and new perspectives on the end-of-life journey, based on real experiences in sharing sessions provided by experienced professionals in palliative care.
