The science of palliative care is evolving rapidly. Palliative care is practiced by both generalists and specialists across a variety of professional disciplines. This conference targets an inter-disciplinary audience of palliative care generalists and specialists from the Western New York Region to establish an annual venue for continuing professional education in the evolving science and practice of palliative care.
This conference is meant to be a regional palliative care update for clinical providers including physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurses, chaplains and social workers. Presentations will include some basic level reviews of palliative care topics for those early in their palliative care careers as well as state of the science updates for very experienced providers. There will be learning opportunities both for those whose main focus is pediatric palliative care as well as adult palliative care.
The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry designates this live activity for a maximum of 5.50 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
