Speaker’s Bureau Topics
Since palliative care and serious, life-threatening illnesses are very difficult issues to discuss, Geisinger’s palliative care specialists are available to speak to and facilitate discussion with your community group. Unfortunately, many of us have family members, friends or associates who could benefit from coordinated, compassionate care, even if they are already receiving medical treatment for their illness. Topics include:
- What is palliative medicine?
- Difficult family conversations
- Maintaining hope
- Breaking bad news
- Living wills and advance directives
- Hospice: an overview for the public
