C143 - Non-Neuro-oncology: Case-based Palliative Care Throughout the Continuum of Disease

Event Time: Tuesday April 25, 2017 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Pain and Palliative Care, Practice, Policy, and Ethics
Director(s): Maisha Robinson MD, MS
Description: Palliative care is important in neurologic practice as the trajectory of many neurologic illnesses is progressive and incurable. Recent national platforms have underscored the need for physicians to be knowledgeable about and competent in basic palliative care. Through the use of personal anecdotes, case presentations, and examples in the literature, faculty will provide strategies to effectively incorporate palliative care into routine neurologic practice from the time of diagnosis throughout the disease course.
Completion Message: Participants should be able to incorporate basic palliative care principles into their practice, understand when to consult specialty palliative care, and recognize when patients may need to be transitioned to hospice care.
