Palliative care is often mistakenly viewed as end-of-life care, but it is actually meant to support patients and their families throughout treatment for serious diseases. Palliative care matters, and despite well-documented facts, it is still underdeveloped and underfunded in many places around the world. Opportunities to develop palliative care programs continue to grow because a majority of people who need it are not dying and are benefiting from disease treatment.
Today, people are living longer with disabling conditions and have the right to care that improves their quality of life. The healthcare community is listening, as shown by the increased number of programs that are homebased, community-based, in hospitals, and with insurance partners. This session will focus on development and implementation of a palliative care program. It will provide tools to focus your efforts and move forward.
