DEMYSTIFYING PALLIATIVE CARE- LIVE WEBINAR
June 28, 2022 : 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Join us for this live webinar to learn how to differentiate between palliative care and hospice care, as well as the importance of palliative care services for people living with serious illnesses. Our discussion will cover the role of healthcare professionals as part of the interprofessional palliative care team in the care of patients living with serious illnesses and the barriers they are facing in practice, such as stigma surrounding end-of-life care. Learn how to address these barriers and increase the proportion of individuals who receive appropriate palliative care treatment.
This activity is designed for Rhode Island primary care physicians, pediatricians, oncologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, pharmacists, social workers, licensed mental health counselors, medical students, residents, fellows, and other allied members of the healthcare team in the care of patients living with cancer or other serious illness.
