*VIRTUAL* Author Talk: Hank Dunn, Hard Choices for Loving People

October 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Virtual Event

Part of our FREE series of readings, workshops, and discussions to help explore what it means to live and die well.

Hank Dunn, Hard Choices for Loving People: CPR, Feeding Tubes, Palliative Care, Comfort Measures, and the Patient with a Serious Illness

Many people say, “I want to die peacefully in my sleep at home,” but that rarely happens and, in fact, takes a lot of planning and preparation. Join healthcare chaplain Hank Dunn as he guides us through the process of making end-of-life decisions. Chaplain Dunn will provide practical suggestions for making medical treatment decisions about things like CPR, feeding tubes, palliative care, and hospice.

Chaplain Dunn will address the new challenges in medical decision making that Covid-19 has presented. Time will be also be given to exploring the emotional and spiritual issues that confront us all as we approach the last phase of life. Let this event help you prepare for a peaceful end.

Chaplain Dunn’s book, Hard Choices for Loving People: CPR, Feeding Tubes, Palliative Care, Comfort Measures, and the Patient with a Serious Illness, 6th Edition has sold almost 4 million copies, and is being used in more than 5,000 hospitals, nursing homes, hospice programs, and faith communities nationwide.

Participants are encouraged to purchase copies of the book prior to the event at Chaplain Dunn’s website or on Amazon.
