About the event
Join Drs. Sammy Winemaker & Hsien Seow to learn 7 Keys to make it easier to talk about serious illness, dying, and death for healthcare providers. Drs. Winemaker and Seow are authors of the new book ‘Hope for the Best, Plan for the Rest’ and co-hosts of the podcast ‘The Waiting Room Revolution,’ which are designed to make a palliative care approach accessible to all patients and families. Based on researching and caring for thousands of patients, they will share 7 keys that can activate patients, families, and providers to have a better illness journey. They will discuss how providers can use the 7 keys to be more proactive and less crisis-driven, by working more upstream and patient-facing.
