2nd Internacional Workshop on End of Life Care 28-29th of november
On Friday’s open session on the 28th of November there were 360 attendees. These professionals were: doctors, nurses, nurse assistants, nursing home managers, psychologists, home care professionals, music therapy service providers and pharmacists.
14 experts from this field were invited, from which 5 came from Europe and one from the States.
On the other hand, Saturday’s closed session on the 29th was very useful. They talked about designing and validating a scale in order to evaluate WTHD (the wish to hasten death). They also commented on the work done after last year’s workshop: development of Delphi and nowadays manuscript’s state. At the end, they explored different ways of addressing the design of this tool and which steps should be taken.
It is also expected that next year’s workshop will also be a success.
