Description: This program will assist end-of-life care provider organizations and health and human service professionals in enhancing their sensitivities and understanding of veterans and to provide professionals with new interventions to better serve dying veterans and their families. Attention is placed on veteran generations now aging and most likely to be seen in end-of-life care (WWII, Korean War, Vietnam).

In addition to individual interventions, the program also will look organizationally at military benefits and intersections with VAsystems. Finally, the program explores the traditions and sensitivities of grieving families and resources that can assist them. The information provided by the expert panel will be useful to clinicians, administrators, and other staff working in hospice and palliative care, hospitals, long-term care and assisted living facilities.

Lunch will be provided.
