Mr. Shill will offer the perspectives of a family caregiver and Dr. Nichols will offer the perspectives of a physician to help the audience:

  • Analyze how physicians and family members work together to improve a patient’s end of life experience;
  • Better understand the legal and medical ambiguities when considering treatment alternatives for a patient approaching end of life in the context of the patient’s advance directives, Medicare rules and the regulatory environment in which physicians must practice; and
  • Consider (i) how treatment options impact a patient’s end of life experience, (ii) the role of physicians in supporting family decision making, (iii) the extent of control a physician should exercise over a patient’s treatment regimen; and (iv) the implication so of all of this on patient / family / physician communications.
