One of the initiatives that we have been developing involves palliative care as a response to physician assisted suicide and euthanasia.
All 3 Associations in the US have been working together on this initiative. You will see a section in our weekly Spirituality in Action email newsletter that contains a series of articles on end of life issues that were written by members of the Federal Association.
Over the past year, American Association members, led by Donna Coletti-Murljacic, MD, DM, have been adapting a program called Dignity Therapy, which will allow hands-on activity of our members in this ministry.
Dr. Coletti was recently interviewed on “the FOCUS on Veritas”, a weekly podcast hosted by Peter Sonski, where she clearly explained palliative care and our Dignity Therapy initiative. Please click here to listen to her interview.
This is a topic that affects all of us and one that we need to understand so we can explain it to others.
