You are invited to a free screening and discussion of the PBS program “Being Mortal” on March 15 & March 22, 2017 at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center. You will be a part of a national dialog taking place in our community that asks “Have you and your family had the tough conversations and planned ahead?”
“Being Mortal” delves into the hopes of patients and families facing terminal illness. The film investigates the practice of caring for the dying and explores the relationships between patients and their doctors. It follows surgeon, Dr. Atul Gawande, as he shares stories from people and families he encounters. When Dr. Gawande’s own father gets cancer, his search for answers about how to best care for the dying becomes a personal quest.
After the screening, you can participate in a guided conversation on how to take concrete steps to identify and communicate wishes about end-of-lifegoals and preferences.
