Upcoming Events

 

February 2020

National Clinicians Conference On Medical Aid In Dying

Topic: We are pleased to announce that End of Life Choices California just became an official sponsor of the first-of-its-kind National Clinicians Conference on Medical Aid in Dying taking place at University of California, Berkeley on February 14-15, 2020.  

Doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, clinical ethicists, pharmacists, hospices and more have been providing and managing this care without formal training or information sharing. They are craving knowledge of and training in standards of care and best practices—everything from prognoses to pharmacology, from the role of hospice teams to evaluations of decision-making capacity, or what “self-administration” means in the real world. In short, there is now a significant need and demand for a conference for those at the bedside. Clinicians and non-clinical or academic attendees are welcome, but in case the conference sells out clinicians will be given priority. 

Date and Time: February 14-15, 2020

Where:  UC Berkeley Clark Kerr Conference Center
