Palliative care focuses on the relief of the symptoms, pain and stress associated with serious illnesses, and provides clear information to patients and their families. Often, palliative care is mistakenly viewed as end-of-life care; however, it is actually meant to support patients and their families during the entire duration of the treatment. Palliative care is crucial, but it’s still underdeveloped and underfunded.
Opportunities to develop palliative care programs continue to grow because a majority of people who need it are not dying and are benefiting from disease treatment. Today, people are living longer with disabling conditions and they have the right to care that improves their quality of life. The healthcare community is listening; however, the challenges are the lack of training in palliative care, understanding what it is, and confusing it with hospice.
Join expert speaker Gloria Turner in this webinar to get access to an online tool for palliative care program development that will allow you to conduct need assessments, identify potential challenges and plan your implementation. Gloria will also provide additional information and a detailed step-by-step plan for development and implementation of your palliative care program.
