#6 Guest: Ron Panzer founder of Hospice Patients Alliance
Ron Panzer founded Hospice Patients Alliance in 1998. Ron is a nurse and author of several books listed below and articles on what occurs in many hospices around the world. He is a consultant on hospice for thousands of families, patients and staff from all over our nation and has been interviewed on various radio shows, quoted in several news outlets and featured as a speaker at many conferences.
HPA's mission is to promote excellence in end-of-life care that relieves suffering while allowing a natural death in its own timing. HPA works with patients, families and members of the professional health care community to improve conditions for patients and staff in hospices, palliative care units and elsewhere within our society. HPA views assisted-suicide and forms of euthanasia as incompatible with real hospice care.
HPA provides information about hospice services, directly assists patients, families and caregivers in resolving difficulties they may have with current hospice services and promotes better quality hospice care throughout the USA. These services are for patients enrolled in a licensed hospice or not, whether residing at home or in a facility.
The misuse of terminal sedation is the Third Way to end life within a health care setting and bypasses laws against medical killing. HPA warns the public that the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization is the successor organization of the Euthanasia Society of America. Read full bio here
