2019 Essentials of Palliative Care and Pain Management for Hospitalists

National Harbor, MD US
March 24, 2019

Palliative care has become critically important in the management of those with serious illness. Hospitalists inherently care for patients with serious illness and are well positioned to make a major impact on their care. Developing and mastering communication skills and complex symptom management using evidence based tools is essential. Join us in these sessions where we will review best practice strategies for communication and provide a foundation to apply pain and symptom management across a continuum of disease states, from relative health to serious illness and end-of-life. Learners of all levels will benefit from this experience.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be better able to:

  1. Describe, observe and practice core communication skills for navigating prognosis and goals of care discussions with seriously ill hospitalized patients and their families.
  2. Identify and apply best practices in pain management in hospitalized patients with serious illness, including rational use of opioid analgesics, appropriate use of adjuvant medications for treating pain and the management of complex pain patients.
  3. Assess and provide effective interventions for non-pain symptoms in hospitalized patients with serious illness, including depression/anxiety, nausea/vomiting, dyspnea, pruritis, and fatigue.
