Today’s episode focuses on the themes of death, dying, and dreams.

End of Life Experiences

Dr. Kerr’s background in research has evolved from bench science towards the human experience of illness as witnessed from the bedside, specifically patient’s dreams and visions at the end of life, termed “end of life experiences” or “ELEs.”

Author Dr Christopher Kerr CEO and Chief Medical Officer at The Center for Hospice and Palliative Care, Buffalo, New York.

On this episode we will hear from Dr. Kerr about:

His background; how he developed an interest in psychology, medicine, and hospice care. How Dr. Kerr started studying end of life (ELE) dreams. About the detailed experiences studied in ELEs such as themes of reunion and guidance and the benefits of ELEs to patients and loved ones. About the connection of Dr. Kerr’s work to other esoteric end of life experiences, such as terminal lucidity or mental “gain in function.”
