presentation is designed to help participants:
a) gain better understanding of the relevance of the palliative/comfort
care option in advanced dementia;
b) Know factors that influence families who represent patients to choose life-prolonging therapy vs. comfort care only;
c) Learn about ongoing research done on the acceptability and usefulness of a booklet for families about demetnia end-of-life issues.

topic! We look forward to seeing you.
