The conversation workshop for attorneys provides a structured approach to create a conversation about quality of life at the end of life. This conversation improves decision-making processes and reduces stress, distress and family conflict during critical periods.

The conversation workshop helps increase confidence and comprehensive understanding of the client's needs during a crisis and adds a personal element to what would seem to be a technical process.

As part of Life's Door's approach, which focuses on the patient, we are offering the conversation workshop at a one-time special price of only 65 NIS.

The workshop is recommended by Professor Shmuel Reis, the Academic Director of the Center for Medical Education of the Faculty of Medicine at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, and Dr. Dan Rohrman, the Director of the Tsur Hadassah clinics, and the Mishan Network.
