“There’s nothing more we can do” is an insufficient but all-too-common answer to the problem of chronic and end-stage disease processes.
This presentation will define palliative care as a medical service that acknowledges the person beyond their disease process. The discussion covers multidisciplinary, patient-centered team approaches to meet the comprehensive needs of seriously ill patients, reduce the burden of symptoms, and improve quality of life.
- Define palliative care.
- Identify when palliative care is appropriate.
- Evaluate team approaches relative to the palliative care continuum.
- Analyze systems-level considerations in implementing palliative care.
- Review practical resources for palliative care.
