Goal:
Caring for the cancer patient in the advanced stages of disease is particularly challenging to the healthcare team. It requires attending to the many dimensions of care including medical, psychosocial, ethical, and spiritual needs. In its 15th year, the Updates in Hospice and Palliative Medicine and Intensive Physician Board Review Course will continue to offer healthcare professionals with educational updates to help them successfully incorporate new information into practice and take the board certification examination. Physicians, fellows and advanced nurse practitioners will gain the knowledge and competence pertaining to symptom and pain management, issues facing patients at end-of-life, and effective communication techniques to implement into clinical practice.
It is expected that participants will be able to implement systematic management of pain symptoms, be able to assess the moral, ethical and psychosocial dilemmas facing clinicians during the end of life, demonstrate effective communication techniques with patients in the advanced stages of cancer or debilitating disease and provide optimal care for noncancer conditions in a hospice and palliative care setting, thus improving end-of-life care while providing quality end-of-life care.

Educational Objectives:
After attending the activity, participants should be able to:
• Interpret spiritual, legal and medical issues facing patients at end-of-life (knowledge, competence);
• Provide optimal End-of-Life care including symptom management, psychosocial support and state-of-the-art pain management (knowledge, competence, performance, patient outcomes);
• Demonstrate effective communication techniques with patients in the advanced stages of cancer or debilitating disease and provide quality end-of-life care (knowledge, competence, performance, patient outcomes);
• Identify non-cancer conditions needing palliative care (knowledge, competence).
