At the end of the session, participants will be able to:
•  Understand the difference between hospice and palliative care

•  Describe three ways of engaging patients and families in difficult conversations
•  Understand the principles behind breaking bad news and negotiating goals of care
•  Describe the dying process and how to manage symptoms in the actively dying patient
•  Understand the principle of double effect

Description:
While some deaths are sudden and unpredictable, many patients go through a period of illness when death becomes increasingly probable. While some patients may find it too distressing, others whose death from their current condition is a foreseeable possibility, are likely to want the opportunity to decide what decisions should be made to manage their illness to the end of life. These difficult conversations can enable patients and their loved ones to make the best use of the time that is left and prepare for what lies ahead. Join oncology nurse practitioner Christina Kim for this valuable session to gain a better understanding about, and how to have these conversations.  *Please note this webinar does not include a discussion of Medical Assistance in Dying*
