On Friday, October 18, 2020, Chaplaincy Health Care held its 4th Annual CME conference, the Art and Science of Managing Advanced Illness and End of Life Care, at the Three Rivers Convention Center in Kennewick.
Dean Sharpe, MD, MHA, started the program with a fantastic presentation on “Ars Moriendi: The Art of Dying.” The event highlighted the art of having difficult conversations with populations impacted by a life changing diagnosis. Breakout sessions focused on supporting end of life needs of the LGBTQ community, people experiencing homelessness, teen grief and caring for Veterans.
The targeted audience for this event included regional professionals and lay caregivers working with frail communities, including Social Worker’s and Chaplains who give support and resources to help those with serious illness. Over 120 people attended.
GCACH is excited to have contributed $3,500 in sponsorship funds to this great event for the community.
