In honor of National Hospice and Palliative Care Month, please join Hospice Austin to watch the riveting film “Defining Hope” on Wednesday, Nov. 1 at 7 pm at Regal Arbor 8 Cinema ~ 9828 Great Hills Trail.
“Defining Hope” weaves the stories of patients with life-threatening illness — and the nurses who guide them — as they make choices about how they want to live, how much medical technology they can accept, what they hope for and how that hope evolves. It is about optimism and helps us define what ‘quality of life’ really means.
Diane is a nurse caring for end-stage cancer patients who is confronted with her own complex diagnosis. 23-year-old Alena undergoes a risky brain surgery that has the potential to damage her short-term memory. 95-year-old Berthold lives with his elderly wife who struggles to honor his wish of dying peacefully at home. “Defining Hope” follows these patients and others
as they face death, embrace hope, and ultimately redefine what makes life worth living.
Nurses will receive 1.25 free contact hours for watching the film and completing the evaluation. CE may be offered for social workers as well.
The film is being presented by Hospice Austin, Texas Nurses Association District 5 & Kitchen Table Conversations.
