In this audio conference you will learn why outpatient services are the new frontier in palliative care.
Sponsored by the Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC).
In this audio conference you will learn why outpatient services are the new frontier in palliative care. Many patients with serious illness spend the vast majority of their time outside of hospitals. Outpatient palliative care services can improve quality patient care, potentially decrease patient mortality, and increase efficiency in health care systems and accountable care organizations. Presenter, Michael W. Rabow, MD, will review the major challenges and opportunities in developing and sustaining outpatient palliative care services and highlight the resources available to support such work.

IHCNO Inaugural Conference
This conference will grapple with the questions of wellness, community, life transitions and creativity as we age.
Santa Barbara, CA, 09/10/2012--Fielding Graduate University is pleased to once again host the 6th Annual International Conference on Positive Aging in Los Angeles on February 10-12. The event will take place at The Center for Healthy Communities at The California Endowment in Los Angeles. The Sixth Annual International Positive Aging Conference is a highly interactive gathering of diverse leaders who are shaping a dynamic future for older adults throughout the world.
According to Katrina Rogers, Senior Vice President, and Provost of Fielding Graduate University, “this conference will grapple with the questions of wellness, community, life transitions and creativity as we age. From these foundations, we will explore how positive aging is a combination of health, wellbeing, self-actualization and living in a system of support.”
Featured speakers so far include:
Wendy Lustbader, MSW, will give the keynote address and will speak about topics in her latest book “The Unexpected Pleasures of Growing Older.” She has also written and spoken about kindness and how to nurture a basic positive attitude towards whatever life brings as we get older.
Ram Dass will be speaking through advanced technology. He has pursued a panoramic array of spiritual methods and practices from potent ancient wisdom traditions, including bhakti or devotional yoga focused on the Hindu deity Hanuman; Buddhist meditation in the Theravadin, Mahayana Tibetan and Zen Buddhist schools, and Sufi and Jewish mystical studies. His unique skill in getting people to cut through and feel divine love without dogma is still a positive influence.
Dr. Brian de Vries, a professor at San Francisco State University, has conducted extensive studies on the aging experiences (including bereavement) among gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender adults. He will be talking about the role of resilience in these elders and what characteristics they bring to facing the challenges of growing older, and coming out of growing up in an era of discrimination and harassment.
A variety of 90 minute workshops will also be offered in creativity, wellness, community, and life transitions, many with an international perspective.
Engage, listen, and exchange ideas with professionals, advocates, policy makers, government officials, Latino seniors, & the Hispanic community.
As U.S. demographics change, Latino seniors and older Americans face enormous disparities and great despair. What is even more unsettling is that they are unaware of the power of their numbers and their collective voice. At times of great need, there are opportunities to take charge, and that moment is now. We have a chance to guide them in finding that voice, and amplify it.
That is why I invite you to join us at the 2012 NHCOA National Summit, a unique opportunity for you to engage, listen, and exchange ideas with professionals, advocates, policy makers, government officials, Latino seniors, and Hispanic community leaders to address these issues.
Through leadership and empowerment, we can address the issues affecting our padres and abuelos. Your 2012 NHCOA National Summit registration allows us to continue training more leaders to advocate and ensure our older adults have food on the table, a good roof over their heads, and economic security to cover their basic, vital needs.
In this audio conference, Dr. Nathan Goldstein will discuss the current barriers to working with colleagues in cardiology.

One day workshop for aging services professional on process of creating meaning and vocational identity in retirement.
Much of retirement planning focuses on the nuts and bolts of housing, healthcare and finances. But in a culture where much of our meaning and purpose is found in our vocational and work identity, the larger questions of retirement are: "Who am I now? What does it mean that I'm still here? What is my purpose now?" This workshop provides a process for answering some of these underlying questions that face us and the older adults we serve as we and they look to and live into retirement.
Through lecture and participatory exercises our presenter, Marjory Zoet Bankson, will introduce us to the process of releasing the past, claiming gifts and passions, and moving into a new future. She is realistic about the resistances we experience from within and without, and provides strategies for confronting them and taking the path that most fulfills and energizes us. This is a process we can take to the older adults in the settings where we serve--congregations, retirement communities, long term care and senior centers.
