Fourth Annual Barbara Swartz End of Life Choices Lecture:
The Dementia Directive: What You Need to Know
The Annual Barbara Swartz End of Life Lecture will explore a new, unique advance directive that addresses end-of-life treatment choices designed for those with early dementia. This directive includes explicit instructions about assisted oral feeding, symptom management through hospice or palliative medical oversight, and a description of advanced dementia.

The panel includes:
Judith Schwarz, PhD RN Clinical Director, End of Life Choices New York
