Academic Meeting

Palliative Care at ASBH

By Janice Firn, PhD, LMSW, HEC-C
The American Society for Bioethics and Humanities (ASBH) annual meeting is October 11-14th in Baltimore, MD. As chair of the ASBH hospice & palliative medicine affinity group, I’m looking for sessions that advance my knowledge/skill set, challenge my assumptions, have a diversity of viewpoints, and lead me to reflect on my own practice in new ways.
