Iron Mountain, Michigan – The Oscar G. Johnson VA Medical Center in Iron Mountain, Michigan, will be hosting Hospice Foundation of America’s 2013 Living With Grief® Program on Thursday, April 18, from 8:30 a.m. to noon (Central Time).
The information provided by an expert panel will be useful to health care workers and administrators in hospice and palliative care, hospitals, long-term care and assisted living facilities.
The program this year focuses on “Improving Care for Veterans Facing Illness and Death.” It is designed to assist end-of-life care provider organizations and health and human service professionals in enhancing their sensitivities and understanding of veterans and to provide professionals with new interventions to better serve dying veterans and their families. The program also looks organizationally at military benefits and intersections with VA systems and will explore the traditions and sensitivities of grieving families and resources that can assist them.
