In “How to Get Your End of Life Wishes Respected and Receive Good Quality Care,” EOLCNY's David Leven will provide a guide to navigating today’s health care system.

Some of the things you’ll learn:

• Why many doctors undertreat pain and how you can get effective pain treatment
• What palliative care is and how and when it can benefit you
• Why dying is very different today than it was 100 years ago
• How to inform your doctors about your end of life care goals and treatment preferences
• The difference between a health care proxy, a living will, and a do not resuscitate order
• How hospices provide for a better quality of life and a more peaceful death
• Why “Aid in Dying” is legal in some states, and what its status is in New York.
