On this edition of "Catholics Matter," Fr. John Ehrich visits with show host, Fr. Rob Clements, to discuss hospice care in line with Catholic teaching with respect to the moral and ethical principals that uphold the value of human life.
Fr. Ehrich is director of medical ethics for the Diocese of Phoenix. He helped Americare Hospice formulate policies and procedures in accordance with the Ethical and Religious Directives of the U.S. bishops, better known as the ERDs. He’s also instructed Americare’s personnel and volunteers about what the ERDs mean and why it’s important to follow them.
