Integrating Primary Palliative Care Skills into Daily Oncology Practice
SELF STUDY / ENDURING - ESTIMATED TIME TO COMPLETE ACTIVITY: 60 Minutes
Palliative care focuses on relieving the symptoms and stress of any serious illness, ideally alongside curative treatment. In this webcast, expert faculty distinguish between primary and specialty palliative care and the roles of each in oncology practice. Faculty will use case studies to illustrate how advanced practice providers can utilize available tools and develop strategies for early care of patients with cancer. Advanced care practitioners can improve their palliative care practices by participating in this program. Subsequently, patients and their families will see a better quality of life throughout treatment.
This CME initiative was designed for oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, NPs, PAs, pharmacists, nurses, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of patients with cancer.
