Conference Description :
In this compelling seminar, multiple case studies like Harold's will provide you with examples that you can incorporate when caring for the terminally ill. Caring for patients with end stage disease requires extreme sensitivity, deep compassion, and extraordinary knowledge. In order to deliver expert, holistic care, healthcare professionals need to have a toolbox full of new interventions to promote quality of life.

Each particular end stage disease has unique complexities for the patient, the family, and the healthcare professional - and this seminar will cover specific strategies for caring for these patients.

Conference Objectives :
• Evaluate functional assessment scales that are predictive of poor survival.
• Explain the benefits of using palliative care principles for patients with end stage disease.
• Develop appropriate Medicare hospice admission guidelines for specific diseases.
• Determine clinical scenarios when hydration would be beneficial for the patient who is at the end of life.
• Compare when palliative services vs. hospice services are most appropriate for the patient.
• Assess for signs and symptoms of pre-active and active dying with associated interventions.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
