PeaceHealth end-of-life care: Fact vs. fiction

Join us for an evening of conversation and dialogue about PeaceHealth’s current policies, procedures and practices related to serious illness and end-of-life care.

  • Who: All are welcome to attend.
  • What: PeaceHealth caregivers will offer frank and clear answers to questions regarding end-of-life choices.
    For example:
    “Will my Advance Care Directive Choices be honored if I am taken to the hospital for a medical emergency?” OR… “If I am in hospital or Hospice, may I choose VSED?”

    Questions will be addressed and explored by:
    Gurpreet Dhillon, director of Palliative, Cancer and Hospice Care at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center
    Jodi Newcomer, nurse manager of Whatcom Hospice
    Ross Fewing, director of Mission & Ethics at at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center
    Sally McLaughlin, executive director of End of Life Washington

  • When Wednesday, January 17, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
  • Where: Moles Community Life Center– 2465 Lakeway, Bellingham, WA, 98229
  • Why: Gain clarity about how and when PeaceHealth can or cannot support end-of-life choices. Come learn to distinguish rumors from realities.
