How can we also ensure the safety and consent of all parties? Join a panel of visionaries and experts who will unravel the myths, challenges, and limiting attitudes surrounding this issue, while also shedding light on discussion points and practices that prepare us to navigate this complex topic with sensitivity and awareness.  Participants will also have the opportunity to submit questions for the panel in advance.

Jane Whitlock, BA, End-of-life Doula
Sandra L. Place, LNHA, MA, Healthcare Educator and Consultant and End-of-Life Doula 

Transforming the culture of care and support doesn’t stop with how we live – it’s also about how we die.  As change agents, we have much to learn about the art of supporting a meaningful death experience from end-of-life doulas.  Once reserved to describe individuals who assist birthing mothers, the word “doula” now also applies to those who support the emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being of the dying.  Join us in conversation with two passionate end-of-life doulas and explore how their unique wisdom and practices strengthen the goals of person-directed care. Participants will have the opportunity to submit questions in advance.
