Get some tips and guidance on how to have one of the most difficult conversations of life: Talking to family members and loved ones about end-of-life care.

Emory Caregiver Support Program is offering a new workshop on Thursday, March 6,  at noon in Room 203 at the Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing.

"End of Life Discussions with Someone You Love" is designed to help faculty and staff learn the proper way to have a conversation with loved ones regarding their desires for end of life treatment. The program is part of Emory WorkLife Resources Center.

The workshop will be facilitated by School of Nursing faculty member Katherine Abraham-Evans. Abraham-Evans, a board-certified Geriatric Nurse Practitioner, will discuss how to ask what their loved ones want at the end of life and how to complete an advance directive.  She will also review the different types of advance directives and where to obtain the necessary forms.
