Steve Widdes will serve as a panelist at the 2012 Transitions in Care: Perspectives for Clinicians and Caregivers Symposium. The panel, titled “End of Life: Best Practices for This Last Transition,” will be moderated by Dr. James Left. Also serving on the panel are Howard Gleckman; Thomas Smith, MD, FACP; Richard Alcorta, MD, FACEP; and Rabbi James Michaels.

This portion of the symposium will include a comprehensive discussion on the issues and perspectives surrounding end of life decisions. An often unrecognized fact is that Care Transitions, particularly multiple and closely spaced ones, signal the approach of the end-of-life. Determining when transitions become intrusive, painful and futile or even in opposition to the wishes of the patient involved is essential to person-centered care. Attention to the needs of the person as death approaches is as paramount in Care Transitions as it is in other clinical areas of care. The role of the clinician, caregivers and others involved is a huge impact for the dying person. This expert panel will discuss the spiritual, medical, emotional and legal perspectives of end-of-life, what many have denoted as the last and ultimate transition.
