Webinars

Webinars are a great way to breathe new life and professional development into those months between ASPE annual conferences. A Webinar is a seminar conducted over the Internet using a combination of conference calls and a website, or an online application for meetings. They are usually an hour long and begin with a presentation followed by a discussion between the presenters and attendees. We offer Webinars on a variety of subjects and at a variety of times to make them attractive and available to as many people as possible.

Being Mortal: And What Matters in the End  

Date: Wednesday, September 28, 2022

Time: 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. ET

About the Book
Medicine has triumphed in modern times, transforming the dangers of childbirth, injury, and disease from harrowing to manageable. But when it comes to the inescapable realities of aging and death, what medicine can do often runs counter to what it should.

Through eye-opening research and gripping stories of his own patients and family, Gawande reveals the suffering this dynamic has produced. Nursing homes, devoted above all to safety, battle with residents over the food they are allowed to eat and the choices they are allowed to make. Doctors, uncomfortable discussing patients' anxieties about death, fall back on false hopes and treatments that are actually shortening lives instead of improving them.

In his bestselling books, Atul Gawande, a practicing surgeon, has fearlessly revealed the struggles of his profession. Now he examines its ultimate limitations and failures–in his own practices as well as others'–as life draws to a close. Riveting, honest, and humane, Being Mortal shows how the ultimate goal is not a good death but a good life-all the way to the very end.
