Before Elisabeth Kubler-Ross published her groundbreaking study, On Death and Dying (1969), the subject matter was nearly absent from medical training and practice. Since this time, it has become an increasingly important consideration within the medical community. This panel discussion explores bioethical issues relating to terminal illness, palliative and end-of-life care, and the relationship between physicians and their dying patients. Dr. Stuart Youngner, Chair of Bioethics at Case Western Reserve University, will lead an expert panel in a dialogue that will draw upon professional and personal experiences to explore new perspectives on these issues.

Beliefs about the afterlife and relationships to religion and spirituality deeply inflect our understanding of and relationship with mortality. This consideration subtly inflects many of the works in DIRGE. In this talk, Chuck Behrens, chaplain for the Hospice of the Western Reserve, will explore the relationship between creative expression, spirituality, and mortality. An accomplished speaker and advisor, Behrens received his Masters in Divinity from Lexington Theological Seminary and has worked in a spiritual care capacity with HWR since 1994.
