Educational and Networking Opportunities

Greater Dayton Area FCN/Health Ministers Network

Join us at the Greater Dayton Area Faith Community Nurse/Health Ministers Network! Meetings are held quarterly and focus on sharing information, learning from guest presenters and reflecting on theological issues. These elements help to reinforce our belief that healing of body, mind and spirit is rooted within the faith community and the healing power of God.

Next meeting:

Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019 from 11:30 am – 2:00 pm

Topic“I Promised Mom I’d Take Her Home.” Assessment and Preparation of the Patient and Caregiver in Transition

Presenter: Kristy Matheson, LSW, CDP, Community Educator, Hospice of the Miami Valley

So often families facing difficult decisions regarding care of their loved ones make these decisions out of promises, often time times, made many years ago. This seminar will validate the emotional journey families face as they make life altering changes. It will also help healthcare professionals navigate the many choices available with the help of assessment tools that help patients and families better understand physical, emotional and cognitive needs now and in planning for future care.

One contact hour is available, and registration is required. Registration will be available soon, call the Health Ministries Program for more information at (937) 227-9454(937) 227-9454.

Save these dates for future meetings:
