Conferences

Palliative Care Grand Rounds

4th Wednesday of the Month at Noon

This is a series of hour-long presentations facilitated by local, regional and national experts regarding issues relevant to the comprehensive care of seriously ill patients and their families. Traditionally held in a state-of-the-art conference room (K-207), Covid-19 has moved us to a purely virtual Zoom format.

For further information, contact our Education Coordinator, Gina Zinn.

Schwartz Center Rounds

3rd Wednesday of the Month at Noon

Schwartz Rounds is an interdisciplinary community gathering focused on the human dimensions of health care. It brings together caregivers from a range of disciplines and levels of training to share experiences and perspectives, and thereby to learn from each other and broaden their view. It was created by health care lawyer Kenneth Schwartz, to “strengthen the human connection, the heart of health care.” Nearly 200 hospitals, hospices and other healthcare organizations conduct Schwartz Rounds in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. The Schwartz Center is in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Unlike grand rounds, this is not about clinical problem-solving, but rather about exploring and processing the emotions that come up in the daily work of caring. For more information about Schwartz Center Rounds visit www.theschwartzcenter.org.

Traditionally held in a large auditorium, Covid-19 has moved us to a purely virtual Zoom format. For further information, contact our Education Coordinator, Gina Zinn.
