    Name: End of Life Care: An Honest Conversation
    Date: October 15, 2018
    Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Dr. Davis will recount the recent history of dying and death through the lens of clinical ethics. Largely due to concerns about a medically prolonged process of dying, advance directives were conceived in the 1970s as tools for enhancing individual autonomy and control over the fate that awaits us all; fifty years later, we are now in the position to evaluate the assumptions that have undergirded their use and appeal. Advance directives have a clear but limited value - that of greater value is honest, courageous, direct communication about end-of-life wishes within families, with health care professionals, and within our society at large.
