End-of-Life Care Webinar

We all care for older people in our emergency departments around the world. Sadly, many of these people are at the end of their lives, and some will die in the emergency department.

This online event will showcase world leaders who have thought deeply about the topic and will cover issues such as:

  • Conversations about resuscitation for seriously ill people in the emergency department
  • How are these conversations different in different countries
  • How can we learn from different cultures and healthcare systems

This event is suitable for:

  • Geriatric and palliative care providers
  • Emergency clinicians of all experiences
  • Students
  • Healthcare professionals
