Much confusion surrounds the concepts of hospice and palliative care. Understanding end-of-life care helps those working in helping professions and others to better explain how and when these services can improve the lives and final days of individuals and their loved ones. This workshop aims to provide a thorough overview about hospice and palliative care; the importance and details of each; and how both can contribute toward helping people experience an end to their lives that is peaceful and comforting to themselves, their families and friends.
Workshop participants will learn how to gently and authoritatively explain the differences between palliative care and hospice care; identifying when the time is appropriate to introduce a conversation about these services; and how to address the difficult situations when medicines and treatments are no longer working.
The goal is a good life – All the way to the very end.
