Working Together to Serve the Dying, the Dead and the Bereaved

2013_Hospice-At-Convention_-Web-Ad_Slide3On Monday, October 21, many of you visited this page to view our special webcast, End of Life Care: From One Set of Caring Arms to Another, and did not find the video feed you expected to see. For that, we sincerely apologize.

For those who were able to find the correct link to the webcast via the NFDA homepage, they saw an extraordinary panel discussing how hospice professionals, funeral directors, members of the clergy and grief counselors can create a continuum of care that supports patients and their families at the end of life.

If you could not view the original broadcast of the webcast, an archived recording is posted below, and on NFDA's YouTube channel. It can be viewed at no charge, any time, day or night. The video will remain posted here and on NFDA's YouTube channel indefinitely.

During the discussion the panelists talked about the role each vocation plays in serving client families and how collaborative efforts can work together to support those at the end-of-life. Panelists included:

  • Robert Friedman MD, FAAHPM, the Chief Medical Officer at Hospice Austin in Austin, TX
  • Dr. Thomas G. Long, the Bandy Professor of Preaching at Candler School of Theology at Emory University in Atlanta, GA
  • Thomas Lynch, a writer and funeral director from Milford, MI
  • Dr. Alan Wolfelt, an author, educator and grief counselor

Again, we apologize if you were unable to view the webcast or if you had technical difficulties while viewing it.
