NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- The College of New Rochelle will be a host site for the presentation of Hospice Foundation of America’s "Living With Grief Managing Conflict/Finding Meaning" distance learning program on Tuesday, April 12, in the Sweeny Student Center from 1 to 3:30 p.m.

Kenneth J. Doka, professor of Gerontology at The College of New Rochelle Graduate School, is one of the expert presenters, and Lynda Shand, of The College of New Rochelle School of Nursing, is on the Review Committee.

This program addresses methods, strategies and practices that can be used to provide pyscho-social and other support to terminally-ill patients, their families, and close networks as they cope with impending death. Particular emphasis will be placed on how to manage sources of conflict that often emerge near life’s end, as well as how to help individuals and families find meaning at life’s end.

Presentations by experts combined with video, discussion, and additional complimentary learning materials will be used to present the educational content. Learners participating in the live event program will have an opportunity to comment, participate in polling, and ask questions of expert presenters. Registration is recommended but not required.

Each year this award-winning program is produced by Hospice Foundation of America, a not-for-profit organization, which acts as an advocate for the hospice concept of care through ongoing programs of professional education, public information, and research on issues relating to illness, loss, grief, and bereavement.
