Empowered Endings Education

Creating an Empowered End of Life Experience

The Empowered Endings Institute’s educational programs are built on the successful foundation of the Empowered Endings Model of Care. This model of care, proven after nearly a decade of co-creating transformational experiences for patients aging and facing complex and terminal illnesses, their loved ones, and the providers who support them, have the support, knowledge, and tools needed to create an Empowered End of Life Experience with the dignity and agency we all deserve.

Unlike traditional, insurance-based medicine, which focuses primarily on disease progression and treatment, we teach that patient well-being encompasses their physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health, and robust support of their loved ones throughout the journey. We extend our support to collaborating providers and ensure the well-being of our care teams as a foundational aspect of our model of care.

End of Life Options with Empowered Endings 101


There is no single approach to End of Life Care that works for everyone. We believe everyone deserves to know the options they have in their final chapter, that providers can communicate with patients and families about them, and that everyone involved should be robustly supported in their journeys.

I just wanted to say thank you Dr. Bob Uslander. You were there when my husband needed you. How can I thank you for that? He was suffering from ALS and wanted to go on his own terms. A friend recommended Dr. Bob Uslander. From that point on he knew he was going to be taken care of. I only wish this service was given as an option in very beginning. To those who are on the fence about contacting this doctor, please do yourself and your loved one a favor and call. You won’t be sorry.

After the very sudden and unexpected death of my younger sister, Elizabeth Uslander was an enormous support. She was understanding, comforting and gave me a framework for my grief process. Losing someone is never easy, but with Elizabeth’s support it has been a much richer experience. I am grateful to have met her and highly recommend working with her.
