Conversations with Loved Ones About Writing a MOLST

March 21, 2016 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Join Dr. Jeffery Zesiger, MD, director of Palliative Care at Cooley Dickinson Hospital, for a discussion about how to have conversations with your loved ones about writing a MOLST (Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment).  Thinking and talking about the end of one’s can be difficult but having conversations with loved ones before medical emergencies develop can also be very important.  Dr. Zesiger will address the challenges of having these conversations and provide advice on how best to proceed.

This event is being held to support the county-wide reading of the book, “Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End.”
