As our population ages, the increasing demand for palliative and end-of-life care takes a huge toll on doctors, patients and families. How can we bring contemplative care to both the patient and caregiver?
Along with the New York Zen Center for Contemplative Care, we’re hosting our second biennial Buddhist Contemplative Care Symposium on palliative and end-of-life care from November 6 – 9, 2014. Physicians, nurses, social workers and caregivers will learn how to improve their well–being and deepen the “healing encounter”.
This short video features some of the leading presenters and major themes of the 2014 symposium. You can also read about our 2012 symposium here.
