About this Event
This Regional Palliative Care Collaborative provides a wide range of updates for clinicians and ancillary professionals who care for patients and families with serious illness. These will provide up-to-date knowledge of the growing set of treatments, supportive care and options for end-of-life care. Contemporary knowledge of these subject matter is essential to enable professionals to provide the best care to their patients. Learning opportunities are designed both for those with a focus on pediatric palliative care as well as adult-focused palliative care and for those who fall in between.
The program caters to a spectrum of providers with expertise of varying levels. Topics such as awareness of psychedelics, support of the care team, special populations (bereaved siblings, persons with developmental disabilities, etc.), care of one’s self, implementing Quality Improvement projects and creating legacy mementos for families will be explored in workshop groups. Participants are encouraged to take practical, evidence-based techniques, theory, and practices back to their institutions to enhance their care of patients and families.
