Rebecca Rech Cutler, a former Hospice nurse, and Bill Lombard MD, a nephrologist, will discuss the meaning of advanced medical interventions in frank terms, focusing on patient outcomes when these interventions are employed. This presentation addresses in layperson’s terms the realities of what these “interventions” mean to average people and their families so that you can make informed decisions about your care. This interactive session will allow for questions and dialogue, and some equipment used in the ICU will be available for viewing. Advance care planning, advance directives, and the importance of community-based palliative care will be discussed.
