About the Event

This online presentation will help you prepare to manage your own or a loved one’s health and medical care needs by teaching the importance of understanding the goals of care, identifying health care preferences and effectively communicating with care providers in most settings. We will also discuss strategies for avoiding health crises and caregiver burnout.  Participants will gain insights on how identifying goals of care can affect one’s course of treatment and quality of life and learn to recognize and reduce the likelihood of health crises and caregiver burnout.  

The presenters are hospice resource nurse Susan Daniels, RN, MSN, CHPN; hospice program bereavement coordinator Sherry Russenberger, GC-C, BCCC; and hospice program volunteer coordinator Diane Santostefano, MBA, EOLD. Carol Bozena and Ellen Thomas, licensed clinical social workers and AARP Connecticut volunteers, will moderate.
