Medical Decision-Making in the 21st Century
Designed for people of any age, in any state of health, this interactive seminar provides knowledge and resources to help in navigating today’s complex healthcare system and prepare for the future. Upon completion of the seminar, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the evolution of Christian understanding of illness and mortality; explore the integration of faith with decision-making
- Recognize advances in public health and medical innovations that contribute to the complexity of choices faced by patients and families
- Understand the nuts-and-bolts of advance directives, living wills, MOLST forms, DNR/DNI, health care proxy forms—what does each one mean, and which are legally binding?
Each participant will receive a comprehensive, resource-rich toolkit, described as “a fabulously complete set of information about every aspect of this topic,” including practical information for caregivers.
