Area(s) of Interest: End of Life Issues Professional Development & Education Continuing Medical Education (CME) 

The Washington State Medical Association (WSMA) invites California physicians to join them September 13-14, 2019, in Seattle for At the End of Life: Agency, Role and Responsibilities of the Physician/Advanced Practitioner. The two-day conference will explore the issues clinicians caring for dying patients often face, as both medical technology and patients' requests for planned death evolve.

This conference will set the state for ongoing discussion of these practices and the clinical, legal, ethical, sociocultural, spiritual and psychological dimensions that are often challenging for physicians to navigate.

The Washington End of Life Coalition—sponsored by the WSMA Foundation for Health Care Improvement—is partnering with the UW School of Medicine Department of Bioethics & Humanities, Cambia Palliative Care Center of Excellence at the University of Washington, and UW School of Law to present this national conference.
