Workshop Description:

Dying in the United States in 2023 can be difficult, in fact it can be more difficult now than any time in the
past. Modern medical care has advanced to the point where we can extend life through treatment of all
diseases. However, we are mortal and dying is our inevitable fate. This presentation will discuss dying in the United States and review Palliative Care and Hospice Care. We will discuss the development of these cares, which are designed to provide high quality care to people in need. Palliative Care and Hospice Care share ideas and many details, however they have distinct differences that we will review. Participants at this presentation will gain an appreciation of Palliative Care and Hospice Care and be able to understand how to access them for themselves and their loved ones.
