Palliative Care Symptom Management Workshop Series Day 1 – Pain
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, in order to minimise the risk to our patients and staff. Accordingly, we have had to take the sad decision to cancel all events and courses that were due to take place onsite during that time. The intention is to hold these events at a later date or, alternatively, continue with an online format.
This online workshop aims to provide those working in palliative care (doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, pharmacists, social-worker 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 (Pain) in order to optimise the quality of life of patients with life-limiting conditions. All who book on to this course will be provided with a link to video/reading materials which should be viewed prior to an hour long live question & answer webinar on the day itself.
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 final live presentation during Workshop 4 on the 25 May 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”.
