Overview / Abstract:

Conference Overview:
Our aging population is expected to grow to almost 87 million by 2050. Over the last decade, the fastest growing cohort has been individuals 85 years and older. With people living longer and older, this conference will provide clinicians and chaplains an update on the latest evidence-based concepts in managing life-limiting illness and end-of-life care. Topic highlights for physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, social workers, psychologists and chaplains will include treatment options, pain management, medical ethics, goals of care, quality of life, palliative and hospice care, and bereavement and grief.

Educational Objectives:

- Describe the impact of chronic illness on life expectancy
- Define the purpose of the Physicians Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (POLST)
