Providing palliative care in any healthcare setting is a great opportunity to meet the growing demands of those we care for and their families while creating a supportive care experience. Formalizing palliative care in the long-term setting allows residents, staff and families to have a greater understanding of the principles of this care and the physical, emotional and spiritual comfort it brings to each person. This 5-hour seminar will feature four sessions, providing an overview and methods to direct effective palliative care. Participants will also receive tools and insights on how to develop and sustain palliative care programs.
