WEBINAR DETAILS

Is a request for a hastened death the same as suicidal ideation? This webinar will provide an in-depth look at the challenges and solutions related to both requests for a hastened death and suicidal ideation. Learn if you should intervene in the same way and follow the same policy for both. The webinar will also review common errors people make when someone says, “I wish this were all over.” or “When my husband dies, I want to go with him.”
