Thursday, October 1, 2020
Caring for patients at the end of life, whether during anticipated or sudden death is a challenging experience for everyone involved in providing care to the patient. Education and discussions around the issues faced at the end of life are critical to fostering a comfort level with clinical staff, caregivers, patients, families and institutions. As science advances to provide the latest treatments, the need for palliative and end of life care has also increased. Those working with patients should be educated on and fully informed of how they can help patients in many ways and provide resources, including psychosocial and spiritual aspects, when they transition from curative to comfort-focused care. CME Credit Available. You must register on City of Hope’s website to sign up for this webinar. City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center is a not for profit biomedical research, treatment and educational center dedicated to the prevention, treatment and cure of cancer and other life threatening diseases.
