End of Life Discussions, Advance Directives,
and Palliative Homeopathy

Dr. Ian Luepker, ND, DHANP

2 General CEUs


In 1945, most people died at home, in 1980 only 17% did. Modern medicine has increased life expectancy, but have we traded living well for living longer? What are the individual and societal costs of doing so? How and when do we make the difficult decision to switch from curative intervention to comfort care? How do we elicit the information required to help patients and their families make decisions at the end of life? How can we assist our patients in making the end of life decisions that are most congruent with their wishes and then document them with an advance directive? Hahnemann railed against palliation but what about when treating terminal illness?  How should incurable cases be approached, and what remedies are most useful for the dying? Pulling from Samuel Hahnemann, James Tyler Kent, Herbert Roberts, George Vithoulkas, and Stuart Close, Dr. Luepker will explore this complex, controversial and universally topical subject.

Understand the importance of having “the conversation” about end of life choices, goals of care, and advance care planning. Explore the bioethics of patient autonomy, veracity, non-maleficence and beneficence and how it applies to end of life discussions and decisions. Compare and contrast naturopathy and homeopathy with contemporary palliative medicine. Differentiate between palliative medicine and hospice. Explore 15-20 homeopathic remedies that are commonly used in palliative care. Recognize what homeopathic potencies are safe to use during palliative homeopathic care.
