ADVANCE CARE PLANNING TRAINING

You’ve probably heard these three words – advance care planning – and perhaps wondered about the process. If so, do yourself and your loved ones a big favor by attending this webinar! You’ll not only learn what advance care planning is, but why it matters and how to go about it.

You’ll leave with forms for documenting wishes, values and preferences for your healthcare. You’ll learn ways to encourage friends and family members who may be reluctant to talk about these things. Most importantly, you’ll have the knowledge and resources to help you and your family improve their healthcare experience by having caring conversations before a health crisis happens.

LINDA WARD

Presenter

Linda served as Executive Vice President for the Center for Practical Bioethics from 2004-2020. Her mother died of complications of Alzheimer’s the month after she joined the Center. Since that time, she has expanded the Center’s work on advance care planning and care at the end of life.

She is a trusted voice in the community, from corporate clients like Hallmark and Evergy to community organizations such as libraries, the VA, hospitals, and service organizations. Her sessions teach families about tools to help with Caring Conversations ahead of a health crisis that can change death and dying from something that tears families apart to a peaceful and meaningful end we all say we want. Linda has spoken to thousands of people over the years, from a single person on a phone call to 800 on a Zoom call.

She says, “Learning about the tools to have caring conversations can have a major impact on family relationships when a loved one dies. No one wants their family not to gather for Thanksgiving anymore because they disagreed on what Mom would have wanted.”

Safety & Efficacy in Emergency Authorization:

GETTING IT TO THOSE WHO WANT IT, RESPONDING TO THOSE WHO DON’T

This session examines the science and challenges in implementing the largest public health response to a global pandemic in the history of humankind. Basic ethical questions from genetic science in developing the most promising vaccines to justice concerns for those communities of color ravaged by the illness will be shared by experts and advocates in a panel format. The dialogue will touch upon our deepest and most profound beliefs about what we know and what we owe ourselves and each other.
