Hospice in Our Community

October 10, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Date: October 10 @ 6:30pm-8:00pm

When you are faced with the possibility of hospice care, not only are you faced with life’s limitations and end, but also a lot of stressful questions.
Whether you are a caregiver, loved one or patient, hospice care focuses on the quality of life rather than its length.

Join us for a free community discussion about “Hospice in Our Community.” Our panel includes a presentation by Jonna Goulding, MD, Director of Palliative and Spiritual Care at Central Vermont Medical Center, as well as other local providers, hospice volunteers and community members.

This is a forum designed to help guide, inform and support patients as well as their families regarding hospice care options.

The panel also includes:

  • Dawn Lefevre, RN, Hospice Nurse, Lamoille Home Health & Hospice
  • Phil Kiely, MD, Hospice & Palliative Medicine Specialist
  • Jennie Mathisen, Hospice Volunteer
  • Alden Launer, Chaplain, Copley Hospital
  • Laura Labow, NP, Oncology & Infusion, Copley Hospital

This forum is a presentation of Copley Hospital’s Ethics Committee. In healthcare settings, ethical questions arise when “the right thing to do” is unclear, or when people disagree about what is best for the patient. Learn more about Copley’s Ethics Committee.Although this is a free forum, attendees are encouraged to RSVP by filling the event registration form below to reserve your seat.

Join us in the Community Room at the Green Mountain Technology & Career Center in Hyde Park.
