Anne Archbold, LISW; Zac Willette, MDiv, BCC

By the end of the session, learners will be able to:

  • Explore a values-based preventative intervention that engages patients, their health care agents, and loved ones
  • Utilize strategies for reducing complicated grief as well as family conflict and trauma related to end-of-life and after death planning
  • Apply these strategies to prevent provider moral distress
