Palliation of Pain

We offered this webinar on December 8, 2016 and August 10, 2017.

Managing a patient’s pain near the end of life is a top priority of hospice care. The goal of this webinar is to teach healthcare professionals to effectively manage a patient’s pain using all available tools, including pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions, based on the etiology or etiologies of the pain.

Key points of this webinar:

  • Employ appropriate pharmacological interventions for pain utilizing the WHO Analgesic Ladder as a guide
  • Articulate and follow the guidelines of effective pain management
  • Select and utilize appropriate adjuvant analgesics when indicated
  • Identify various non-pharmacological interventions for the management of pain
