About the book
Our intention with this book is to create a space to pause, to reflect, to be in community. To give space to the very human interactions that stay with us, the ones that keep us up at night, that push or challenge us, and at times change who we are as clinicians and human beings. To express gratitude for lessons received, to mourn lives lost, to acknowledge where we may have been complicit, to see each other and those we show up to support through the door of humanity. All without judgement.
Edited by Terry Altilio, Anne Kelemen, Vickie Leff, Arika Patneaude

Reconstructing Palliative Care Practice: A Beginning
A Different Type of Workshop
This workshop is structured to engage any provider working in serious illness care. Designed to be in-person the goal is shared learning in the setting of protected time to begin to reconstruct palliative care practice, questioning some primary constructs and working to develop a model that integrates the learnings and experiences of clinicians practicing over the past half century.
We cover topics such as Family, Team, Assessment/Intervention, Pain, Ethics and Language understanding the intersectionality of this content – the horizontal and vertical planes of practice that create a tapestry of experience which joins patients, families, and staff.
Here are a just a few of the concepts that are interwoven throughout the workshop:
Continuum of Decision-Making Capacity
Disrupted Relational Difficulty
Structure and Stewardship
Terry Altilio & Vickie Leff are the faculty for the workshop.
