A Conversation on Religious Practice and Palliative Care

A moderated panel with Jewish, Christian, and Muslim physicians sharing how religion affects views on the afterlife. With a specific emphasis on palliative care, we hope to dive deeper into how different religions view life after death, how faith affects daily interactions with patients, and difficult decisions that faith-identifying doctors had to face in medical practice.
