Open Classroom: Conversation of Your Life
2:30 p.m.
Anacon A

Conversation of Your Life (COYL) aims to talk about one of the most difficult conversations regarding one’s life – that is the end of life. COYL’s goal is to educate the public about their options as they approach the end of their life. They focus on advance directives, which inform healthcare providers of the life-sustaining interventions that patients may or may not want if they are no longer able to decide for themselves. Having an advance directive allows healthcare staff and family to know and respect the patient’s wishes regarding their care. Although oftentimes difficult to discuss, COYL believes that the information is fundamentally important for all Americans to know and would like to come speak about it to Monmouth University students and staff. Class, NU 450-01: Leadership in Nursing and Healthcare, organized an educational seminar on campus from the Conversation of Your Life (COYL) project.
