Dr. Angelo E. Volandes, a physician and researcher at Harvard Medical School and Massachusetts General Hospital and author of The Conversation: A Revolutionary Plan for End-of-Life Care, knows that the most effective, powerful and empathetic tool a doctor can offer patients in the end stages of life is perhaps the simplest: “The Conversation.” In this lecture he will illustrate how initiating an honest discussion among doctors, patients and their families empowers patients to establish the treatment goals they want while avoiding procedures that cause more harm than good, thus closing the enormous gap between the care people want at the end of life and the care they actually receive. The program is cosponsored by Good Shepherd Community Care. The talk will be followed by a book signing with books provided by New England Mobile Book Fair.
