Palliative Medicine And End Of Life Care, Including Related Topics In Neurology
June 20 @ 8:00 am - June 28 @ 5:00 pmUSD895
The lectures will cover neurologic aspects of palliative care with a focus on disorders of consciousness, stroke, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and brain death.
These topics were selected as examples of conditions where clinicians should be thinking of patient values and goal and the discussion they and the entire clinical team should be having with their patient. The desired outcome fo the lecture series is that those attending will have the awareness to initiate a discussion about care goals, be able to identify the course and associated symptoms of neurologic illness, have the tools to have a meaningful and comfortable discussion with a patient and family, and leave with a plan to implement change on their return home.
