Introduction to Palliative Care

We offered this webinar on October 13, 2016.

Palliative care is a wide umbrella that includes many aspects of healthcare. But how does it differ from hospice care? The goal of this webinar is to provide healthcare professionals with an overview of palliative care services and how they fit into the continuum of care.

Key points of this webinar:

  • Articulate a rationale for palliative care based on barriers to hospice access
  • Compare and contrast palliative care and hospice services
  • Describe the different locations where palliative care may be provided and the indications for palliative care services
  • Appreciate the role palliative care plays as a key element in the continuum of care
