Description

Honoring a Family’s Goals about a Meaningful Life and Death: A case study: Lauren Schmidt, MSW, LICSW, palliative care consultant in the Division of Bioethics and Palliative Care at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Objectives:

  • To explore how a family’s own micro culture impacts views on quality of life and their child’s death.
  • To identify how a family’s understanding of their child’s illness can evolve and change over time and how that impacts their choices.
  • To talk about and understand some of our own internal biases, why they are normal, and how we can incorporate awareness into our practice so that is does not impact patient care.
