For Immediate Release – August 24, 2017
(Lafayette, CO) – TRU Community Care, founded as Boulder County Hospice in 1976, is proud to present Transcending the Norm—New Thoughts on Caring for Our Community, a symposium October 10-11 featuring keynote speaker Dr. Timothy G. Ihrig. Ihrig’s TED Talk, What We Can Do to Die Well, has been viewed more than one million times.
At this two-day event, attendees will hear from experts in palliative and hospice medicine about the future of health care and what we can do to provide the best outcomes for patients, particularly the elderly. Topics may include: paving the way for palliative partner relationships; practical approaches for moving care upstream; PACE and population health—keys to reaching underserved seniors; and palliative care’s place in advocating for our elders.
When asked about end of life, Dr. Ihrig said, “Palliative medicine is the answer to engage with human beings, to change the journey that we will all face, and change it for the better.”
Join TRU Community Care and Academy Senior Living for this timely and important educational opportunity. Community members, health care providers, partners of hospice, PACE and palliative care and those curious about how to live their best in the last years of life are welcome to attend.
