Chicago End-of-Life Care Coalition (CECC) promotes a culture shift that recognizes dying as a part of life and actively supports quality end-of-life care and advanced care planning.  We help prepare the many professionals whose work relates to the end of life to assist people in receiving care that honors their wishes.

Chicago End-of-Life Care Coalition envisions a future in which:

  • People in our communities receive excellent end-of- life care. They actively  discuss and plan for the end of life in advance of and throughout serious illness.  They are supported by professionals from many disciplines and by their loved ones to receive quality care that honors their wishes.
  • Healthcare professionals understand and honor patients wishes for care and have the preparation and resources needed to support patients and  their loved ones.

Dignity Therapy
Final Words for Final Days
Presentation by Harvey Chochinov

Maintaining dignity for patients approaching death is a core principle of palliative care.  Translating that into guiding care at end of life can be complicated.  Join us at Dr. Harvey Chochinov, an internationally acclaimed researcher, discusses how dignity therapy can address many of the psychological, existential and spiritual challenges patients and families face when coping with the realities of death.
