Palliative Care: A Novel Solution to the Health Care Crisis. Dr. R. Sean Morrison, Professor of Geriatrics and Palliative Medicine, Mount Sinai School of Medicine The current health care reform debate has addressed end of life care as an area of focus for cost savings and systems improvement – spawning the popular discussion of “Death Panels”. This talk would orient the discussion to reality and focus on how the health care system and the legal system has evolved to support an individual’s ability to make informed decisions about what kind of medical care and treatment they want at the end of life in that context as well as what impact improved end of life care may have on the health care delivery system. The policy changes that are necessary to achieve an improved end of life care system would be highlighted. Free and open to the SU community. Reception follows in the Center for Policy Research, 426 Eggers Hall. Co-sponsored by the Finger Lakes Geriatric Education Center of Upstate New York, the Center for Policy Research, and the SU Gerontology Center. For details go to
