Ethics and Spiritual Care at the End of Life
Aaron Kheriaty, MD and Joseph Nguyen, SThD
Intended Audience Medical Student Pre-Clerkship, Medical Student-Clinical, Resident, RN, Fellow, Practicing Physician
Resource Type Lecture/Presentation, Video
Abstract In our increasingly complex medical system, physicians and other healthcare providers, as well as patients and their family members, often face difficult decisions regarding end-of-life care.  In addition to being emotionally challenging, such decisions involve complex ethical considerations. Furthermore, physicians are increasingly recognizing the importance of spiritual care at all stages of treatment, but particularly when patients are facing death. For many patients, spiritual and religious beliefs and convictions play an important role in addressing end-of-life issues and informing ethically difficult decisions. This symposium brings together physicians, healthcare providers, chaplains and spiritual care providers, and interested members of the community to examine key themes in both clinical ethics and spiritual care at the end-of-life.
