November Death Cafe
There were four individuals who attended our Death Café in November. The group talked about a variety of topics, the first being do not resuscitate (DNR) orders. Individuals talked about the different types of DNRs in Iowa and the forms to fill out to have your DNR request honored. Iowalegalaid.org was mentioned as a good resource for DNR forms.
One individual mentioned that they had been to a dying expo and shared their experience at that event. Medical assistance in dying in relation to the Iowa legislation was discussed, and it was mentioned that the Hospice association has been lobbying against medically assisted death. Palliative care was a topic of interest to members.
This month’s Death Café was full of insightful information, and we are so excited to meet for our next Death Café!
