The College of Nursing will host the James Wake Memorial lecture,”Palliative Caring: Transforming the Culture of Care through the Integration of Key Palliative Care Principles,” on Wednesday, Nov. 7, from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the AMU Monaghan Ballroom. A reception will follow the lecture.
Shirley Otis-Green, founder of Collaborative Caring, will keynote the lecture. Focusing on the need for transformation in the culture of care, Otis-Green and her audience will identify opportunities to change the culture of caring within their areas of influence during this interactive presentation. Integration of key palliative care principles, evidence-informed best practice models and resources will be shared as participants explore ways to improve quality of life for their patients and families while also lessening their own moral distress.
The Wake Lecture is sponsored by the College of Nursing’s Institute for Palliative and End of Life Care, in memory of James Wake, late husband of former Marquette Provost Dr. Madeline Wake. James Wake’s career was devoted to helping others through social work and chaplaincy.
