Palliative Care Symptom Management Workshop FULL Series
Due to the current Covid-19 crisis, Our Lady’s Hospice & Care Services have taken the decision to close the Education & Research Centre to all activity until June 2021 at least, in order to minimise the risk to our patients and staff. We will continue to hold education events with an online format where possible and we will update our website when we reopen to live in person events onsite.
This series of stand-alone online workshops aims to provide doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, pharmacists, social workers and occupational therapists, whether new to specialist palliative care or those working in non-specialist care, with an opportunity to develop their theoretical knowledge in palliative care symptom management in order to optimise the quality of life of patients with life-limiting conditions.
This programme will provide participants with a good understanding of person-centred palliative care using case scenarios of both life-limiting malignant and non-malignant disease.
Having worked through the online material, these workshops will culminate in a one-hour live case study presentation delivered by one of our clinical nurse specialists from the community palliative care team via Zoom.
The case study will be presented at 15.00 on the day of each workshop. The live presentation during Workshop 4 on the 8 December 2021 will be delivered by Dr. Michael Connolly, Joint Associate Professor of Clinical Nursing and will explore “A Palliative Approach to End-of-Life Care”.
