On-Demand Webinar: End-of-Life Dreams and Visions: A Research-Based Inquiry
End-of-Life Dreams and Visions: A Research-Based Inquiry
Presenter: Christopher Kerr, MD, Ph.D. CEO, CMO, Hospice Buffalo
Description: Dr. Kerr and the Hospice Buffalo research team have used an evidence-based approach to study the end-of-life experiences of over 1,400 dying patients and their families, many video-recorded. The talk will review these studies which highlight the characteristics and content of end-of-life experiences as well as their effect on post-traumatic growth. More recent studies have focused on the impact on end-of-life experiences on the bereaved which will also be discussed. Dr. Kerr’s talk will include videos of patients and their families. Dr. Kerr has written a book based on these studies, Death is But a Dream: Finding Hope and Meaning at Life’s End, which was recently released on February 11, 2020, by Penguin Random House.
