VNA’s Madison-Deane Initiative presents - Changing the Landscape of End-of-Life Care in Vermont: Strengthening the Patient-Physician Relationship with Dr. Lauge Sokol-Hessner. Conversations on end of life are getting increasing attention locally and nationally. In Vermont, we are embarking on change now to ensure our goals for end-of-life care are honored. Dr. Sokol-Hessner has been successful in leading systemic change at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) to support an improved experience for patients and physicians at the end of life. Based on his successful work at BIDMC, he will share with us a template for change that better supports individuals’ goals for care. MDI hopes to empower community members and health care providers to engage in conversations about wishes and goals for end of life.
The Vermont Hospice Study findings will also be discussed during this event as a springboard for discussion and change.
