We look forward to celebrating the 110th birthday party for home healthcare in the Monadnock Region with you!
This afternoon features a presentation by Dr. Angelo E. Volandes. A key ingredient to informed patient-doctor discussions regarding end-of-life care includes the patient’s ability to understand and imagine hypothetical disease states and medical interventions. However, studies suggest that there are numerous barriers to communication between doctors and patients. One innovation to surmount these barriers includes using video decision aids to reinforce end-of-life conversations. Dr. Angelo E. Volandes leads a group of internationally recognized researchers who create and study video decision aids to empower patients and families to make informed decisions at the end of life.
Copies of Dr. Volandes' recent book will be available for purchase at the event and he will be signing books for attendees. Light refreshments will follow the book signing.
