Over the past eleven years as a hospital / hospice chaplain I have travelled with about 1,300 folks who were dying and the most significant issue encountered in these patients causing distress is a loss of meaning at life’s end. This webinar is a presentation combining the learning from these inspiring people and studies for a doctoral degree on how to address existential distress at life's end. The presentation will utilize storytelling and reflection from the current literature.
Learning Objectives
  • Participants will gain an increased knowledge on the basis and symptoms of end-of-life existential suffering.
  • Participants will learn specific verbal and non-verbal skills to enhance difficult end-of-life conversations.
  • Participants will learn non-pharmaceutical therapies to ameliorate end-of-life existential suffering.
Please Register by Tuesday, November 27, 2018

Registration by the published deadline is required to ensure that participants receive handouts, login information and pre-reading materials, if any, in sufficient time before the webinar.
Fred Grewe is a Board Certified Chaplain (Association of Professional Chaplains) with a Doctor of Ministry Degree from the Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley. He is also an ordained UCC minister working for Providence Hospice in Medford. Grewe is the author of “What the Dying Have Taught Me about Living,” several peer reviewed articles, and has presented workshops on end-of life distress at numerous national and regional conferences. His latest book, “Time to Talk about Dying’’ was recently published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers.
How It Works
To participate, all that is needed is a computer with Internet access and speakers, as the presentation audio and visuals are "webcast." Our webinars are priced per computer terminal, not per participant. That means you can invite as many colleagues to join you as can fit in your conference room or cluster around your computer. As a participant, you will be able to interact with the presenters, who will ask questions of the audience and answer questions posed by participants.
System Requirements
• As a best practice, we highly recommend an Ethernet connected computer for best connectivity and listening experience. You may experience some buffering of audio on lower bandwidth wireless connections.
• Internet Browsers:  Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or later, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, or Windows Edge browser.
• Stable Internet Connection, DSL or above:  100kbps for video transmission, 300kbps for screen sharing and remote control, 500kbps to ensure fluidity of all services.
• Operating System: Windows 7, Windows 8, or Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Mac OS X v10.4 or higher, Linux, Solaris.
• Adobe Flash Player 13.0 or newer:
• Computer Speakers
The link below will test your system to make sure you are running the most recent version of Adobe Flash Player and to make sure it is not being blocked by your network.
The "Connectivity" line should have a green check mark. If it does not please contact your network administrator to allow TelSpanWeb access to port RTMPE 1935. This will allow your Adobe Flash Player to run properly through TelSpanWeb. "Application Sharing" applies only to presenters, so if you see a red "X," that's OK.
If you have any further questions or concerns, or if you do not have computer speakers, please contact APC at for assistance.
You will receive an e-mail confirmation upon completion of the online registration and payment process. Instructions for logging into the webinar will be e-mailed to all participants two business days before the event.

APC® reserves the right to cancel the program within five (5) business days of the scheduled event, if an insufficient number of people register.
