The Pikes Peak Forum for Health Care (PPFHC) was launched in Colorado Springs in 1996 in response to local conferences addressing community values and care of the dying patient. Representatives from over 30 agencies (civilian, military, legal, religious, education, health care and hospice) met over five years for extended dialogue resulting in the publication of the booklet
Decisions About the End of Life - - Help for Those Who Must Decide.
It is our hope that these materials will be of assistance to members of the community facing health care decisions at the end of life and will serve to broaden the community discussion already under way. These guidelines and materials are meant to encourage ongoing conversation between health care professionals and patients, within families, between loved ones, and within community groups.
- PPFHC strongly believes that broadly based dialogue and careful consideration of these concerns are long overdue.
- PPFHC provides a local forum for sharing and weighing different views and concerns relating to health care ethics and end-of-life care.
We meet on the 3rd Wednesday of each month unless otherwise indicated. Please feel free to contact us if you are interested in joining our meetings.
