HPCAA's APCEL conference "The Ties that Bind: Partners in End of Life Care" was a GREAT success! Many reported on their evaluation forms that they really enjoyed the speakers and have a greater appreciation for the hospice - nursing home relationship now. Thanks to our APCEL (End of Life) Committee for bringing us such a wonderful conference!

I'm glad you had an opportunity to use some of my qutosiens. Interviewing individuals at the end of life is tender and emotional work but also very satisfying. My advice to anyone thinking of doing this is to be clear about your own attitudes and feelings around dying. If the subject causes you distress, then it's perhaps not the work for you. It's also important to try to avoid carrying the sadness around with you. Have a good support network of friends and family. And have interests that can be fulfilling and nurturing. I hope this is of some help.
