A DOCTOR MEDIATES END OF LIFE ISSUES
KHALID REHMAN, MD, FACP, MPA
Death is a life changing event not only for the deceased but for the rest of the family. There is a lot to do, to sort out. Family bonds are often tested and relationships must be re-evaluated. Unfortunately, serious disagreements, divisions and conflicts frequently arise at this critical time, when everyone ought to be able to come together and support the dying and each other. Long-term resentment, anger and even estrangement often result.
At this breakfast, Dr. Khalid Rehman will address the crises related to end of life medical care. As a long-time medical practitioner, he has witnessed too many conflicts at the end of life, which could have been avoided with proper planning and the right conversations.
Possible questions he will address include:
What medical care should be rendered?
What medical care should not be rendered?
Who decides how to proceed?
How many family members should be involved?
When should end of life planning take place?
