So very much looking forward to engaging with the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership as the Patient/Consumer Engagement Project Consultant focused on advising collaborative team in the space of planning for end of life care.
From PubMed – End of life care–the importance of advance care planning …
“Communication about end of life care may involve difficult conversations for patients, family members and health professionals. However, a lack of understanding of a person’s wishes about their future care may result in a loss of dignity for the person, and additional distress for their family members and health professionals and burden to the healthcare system.”
Such an important topic (and patient & family engagement so crucial) I am thrilled to have the opportunity to be of service to the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership program and the collaborative team focusing to make improvements in this area.
