Topic: How does Hospice Care meet the needs of the Gerontology community?

by Dr. Thomas Bui, MD

How does Hospice Care meet the needs of the Gerontology community? How can Gerontologists and Aging Marketplace professionals use Hospice Care to uphold their clients? Hospice is that marvelous patient-centered service and family resource available in the latter stages of life. A better understanding of Hospice will  upgrade every Aging professional’s portfolio of knowledge.

Dr. Thomas Bui, MD, in affiliation with VITAS Hospice, will focus on the skills of Gerontologists and Aging Marketplace professionals and what they need to know in the world of hospice care. Trained at Ross University School of Medicine, with a Masters in Public Health from Loma Linda University, and his primary Board Certification in Family Medicine, Dr. Bui comes to us with tremendous credentials. He did his residence at Kaiser Permanente in Fontana in Palliative Medicine, and has a Fellowship with Specialty Training of Hospice and Palliative Care from Kaiser Permanente, Los Angeles Medical Center.  Dr Bui has published in the Journal of Hospice and Palliative Medicine; he has written two chapters in the leading palliative textbook for the field, and has authored three chapters in the Oncology & Radiation Handbook. Dr. Bui was the former Director of Palliative Medicine at Geri-net Medical Association before coming to VITAS.  The Let's Group is honored to have Dr. Bui present his thoughts on Hospice to us!
