Discussing Advance Directives with patients is topic of SUNY Upstate’s Nursing Teaching Day Nov. 2

Few people have Advance Directives on file with their physicians, yet many health care providers are now trying to make this discussion a part of medical care. How can they broach the topic to patients in a sensitive and caring manner?

This question and others related to Advance Directives will be discussed at SUNY Upstate Medical University’s 2002 Nursing Teaching Day Saturday, Nov. 2 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Wyndham Syracuse, East Syracuse.

The Teaching Day will assist health providers to clarify the concept of Advance Directives to patients and their families. Tips and tools on developing Advance Directives for patients will be offered, and a panel of medical, nursing, legal and medical ethics experts will share their views.

Continuing Nursing Education credits are available.

To register or for more information, call the SUNY Upstate Nursing Alumni Office at 315-464-4278.
