Description

What would it mean to patients if healthcare created an experience of being transformed by illness rather than being diminished by it? In other words, seeing illness and disability and death as normal parts of human life; issues to work with rather than pathological invaders to be combated. Dr. BJ Miller is one of the pre-eminent speakers on palliative and end of life care. Drawing on his expertise as a physician, former Executive Director of Zen Hospice Care, and as a patient, he will share his vision for a healthcare system that minimizes unnecessary suffering and maximizes quality of life.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify the true needs of patients at the end of life
  • Define a different approach to care that is a hybrid of the medical model and the social model

Speaker(s):
