Starting on October 8, 2019, the Senior Lawyer Section will hold our first webinar conversation for Lawyer Well-Being. This first, webinar will be on Palliative Care, Hospice and Relevant Laws. The 30-min conversation will be hosted by, David P. Miranda, former NYSBA President and our first guest will be David C Leven, JD, Executive Director Emeritus and Senior Consultant, End of Life Choices New York.

To give you an idea of how our webinars will work, you can listen to a podcast with Ida Abbott, a lawyer and consultant for more than four decades. Ida was recently featured in a podcast for The Legalpreneurs Sandbox Podcast Series sponsored by the Centre for Legal Innovation (Australia, New Zealand and Asia-Pacific) at The College of Law in Australia. The conversation, which was hosted by the Centre’s Executive Director Terri Mottershead, examines the impact of the exodus of Baby Boomer lawyers from legal practice and the role that mentoring should/can/will play in the consequent “changing of the guard.”

A breakdown of the topics they cover can be found on the Centre for Legal Innovation website, and you can listen to the podcast there or here.

We think you will find this discussion quite valuable.

Surveys show that about 70% of the public does not know what palliative care is but, when informed about it, 92% said they would be likely to consider it for a loved one who has a serious illness. Mr. Leven will not only define palliative care but also provide important information on issues such as when it should be provided, barriers to its provision, how it differs from hospice, and elements of the Palliative Care Access Act and the Palliative Care Information Act.
