How Integrating Palliative Care Principles in Geriatrics Can Improve Patient Care


  • Wednesday, April 15

    3 p.m. - 4 p.m. ET

Clinicians may struggle with recognizing warning signs in geriatric patients who will have poor outcomes. That said, there are several methods of prognostication that can assist in predicting these outcomes, which would help patients avoid suffering and improve quality of life. Prognostication takes many forms (e.g., event, time, probability) and can be effective in guiding medical care and decision making.

This Master Clinician session will explore the skills, tools, and models used by palliative care clinicians to prognosticate patients at risk for poor outcomes, and how clinicians can integrate this into their practices to improve patient care.
