Persons with severe persistent mental illness (SPMI) experience challenges and barriers to care from many sources, such as stigma and medical complexity. So what happens to care when a person with a SPMI reaches end of life? This webinar reports on a scoping review conducted to determine the extent, range, and nature of research activity about persons with SPMI approaching end-of-life, and to identify gaps and opportunities for future research. A discussion period will follow.
