What You’ll Learn

While excellent disease management is a must in all situations, caring for the sickest patients must also incorporate patient priorities for function and quality of life, attention to physical and emotional distress, and support for the all-important family caregiver. Expert symptom control, honoring patient goals and preferences, skilled communication, coordination of care, and support for family caregivers result in improved quality of life and outcomes for patients and their families.

Take the courses in the Relief of Suffering Across the Disease Trajectory unit to learn essential strategies.
