Palliative Care Myths, Misconceptions, and Setting the Record Straight

In this lecture presentation, we’ll review palliative care as a medical specialty that focuses on caring for people and families living with a serious illness. Palliative care focuses on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of an illness and aims to improve quality of life. It can be appropriate for people at any age and at any stage of illness, and it can be delivered alongside curative treatment. Come learn about what palliative care can offer and why it might be a great addition to your team.
