The somewhat clichéd phrase “tender, loving care” is often used to describe the compassion and consideration offered in hospice and palliative care settings. But, loving care is rarely acknowledged as an authentic clinical approach. Can loving care complement problem-based medicine? Can it be used to enhance our ability to respond to human suffering?
On May 4, The Council on Palliative Care welcomes Dr. Ira Byock, an authority on ethics and practice of hospice, palliative and end-of-life care, to deliver a free public lecture on “The ethics and practice of loving care” that will explore these questions.
The Council on Palliative Care’s 14th Annual Sandra Goldberg Lecture: The Ethics and Practice of Loving Care. Wednesday, May 4 at 5:30 p.m. at Moyse Hall, 853 Sherbrooke St. W. All are welcome. For more information, please email Fmpa202@aol.com or call 514-499-0345
