Interdisciplinary End of Life Symposium 2024

Las Vegas, NV US
May 29, 2024 to May 31, 2024

INTERDISCIPLINARY END OF LIFE SYMPOSIUM OVERVIEW

Caring for patients at the end of life, whether during anticipated or sudden death is a challenging experience for everyone involved in providing care to the patient.  Education and discussions around the issues faced at the End of Life are critical to fostering a comfort level with clinical staff, caregivers, patients, families, and institutions.  As science advances to provide the latest treatments, the need for palliative and end-of-life-care has also increased. Those working with patients should be educated on and fully informed of how they can help patients in many ways, including psychosocial and spiritual aspects, when they transition from curative to comfort-focused care. 

This symposium is designed to educate healthcare professionals, hospices, long-term care facilities and hospitals on multiple facets in end-of-life-care for patients with complex and terminal diseases.  This symposium will prepare those providing care to patients in understanding the various influences that affect patients when the focus of their treatment changes from curative to comfort-focused care allowing for a life with quality even when curative treatments are no longer an option. 

Target Audience

Physicians, physician assistants, nurses, advance care practitioners, social workers, hospice clinicians, spiritual care representatives, hospital administrators, hospice administrators and staff, long-term care and skilled nursing facilities administrators and staff, students, medical residents and fellows, and all other allied health care professionals interested in the subject matter.
