Determining Prognosis in Cancer and Non-Cancer Diagnosis

We offered this webinar on March 14, 2019.

This webinar helps physicians, nurses, case managers and social workers understand the trajectories of dying from cancer and non-cancer diagnoses, including heart, lung, kidney and liver disease, stroke, HIV/AIDS, dementia and neurodegenerative diseases.

Aided by a better grasp of the decline-related domains involved in poor prognosis, disease progression and disease end stages, attendees will be better positioned to identify patients and residents who are appropriate for hospice care.
