Hospice of the Red River Valley Announces January Lunch and Learn

Hospice of the Red River Valley invites health care professionals to its January Lunch and Learn as we continue to explore various topics related to end-of-life care. Hospice of the Red River Valley is an approved provider of continuing education for social workers in North Dakota. This program will be awarded 1 contact hour.

In this session, participants will discuss ethical issues and dilemmas that may arise in end-of-life care and describe specific roles of the nurse in ethical decision-making. Attendees will also describe advance directives and their role in preventing ethical dilemmas and learn how to apply ethical principles in addressing end-of-life care dilemmas, including models for case analysis and use of an ethics committees.
