Palliative Care is a radical and transformative approach to care for persons with serious illness and at end of life. Through lectures, panel discussions, and case presentations offered by experts in the field, this convening seeks to provide palliative care education to health, aging and allied professionals in Downstate New York and the Hudson Valley Region. The program aims to raise awareness about the push to expand the boundaries of palliative care and to integrate palliative and social care within a global framework of ethics and ethical practice. Goals for workforce development will be examined. The conference will offer ample opportunities for networking and dialogue with colleagues across the professions.
