The Empowered Endings Institute

Learning, sharing, growing

The Empowered Endings Institute, created and led by educator and advocate Elizabeth Uslander, and physician and end of life expert, Dr. Bob Uslander, provides resources and programming regarding how to create an Empowered End of Life Experience for all.

We hope to reframe the narrative of end of life throughout society—from healthcare systems to politics to personal beliefs. We’ve gathered and created these resources to help healthcare professionals, End of Life practitioners, and community members learn more about the realities and possibilities of End of Life Care.

We know that together, we can work to ensure everyone has access to the dignity and agency they deserve throughout their final chapter.

The Empowered Endings Institute was established to share the wisdom of End of Life Experts with a community of passionate people who are ready to change the way the final chapters of life are discussed, understood and experienced. Our education, resources and community are designed to support everyone in understanding how we can transform Palliative, End of Life, and Grief Care for all.

Speaking Engagements

Whether looking for keynote speakers, community seminars, clinical in-services, our co-founders, Dr. Bob and Elizabeth Uslander are excited to share invaluable insights and education, exploring topics related to Planning for an Empowered End of Life Experience, legal End of Life Options, different models of Palliative, End of Life and Grief Care, and more. All options for Empowered Endings Speakers are available in-person or via online webinars.

Bob and Elizabeth are just very gentle souls. There was no pressure and shared with my wife Rachel and I the many options you have to consider. It felt just like someone putting their arms around you.

[Dr. Bill Parker]

For us as a family, Bob and Elizabeth gave us the tranquility and support that we needed at that moment. It made a total difference in the way my Dad passed away. It allowed me to be the daughter and not a nurse.
