8:00AM-4:20PM
CO-DIRECTORS: Daniel Johnson, MD & Jeanie Youngwerth, MD
This symposium will strengthen participant’s core knowledge and skills when caring for seriously
ill, hospitalized patients and their families. Nationally recognized educators will lead case-based,
problem-solving sessions to help participants understand evidence and apply practical pearls to
better manage refractory pain and symptoms. A lively pro-con “group debate” will explore the
ethical and legal tensions that arise around disagreements in documented patient care preferences. Finally, interactive, hands-on communication workshops will introduce a simple framework
for more effective conversations, with practical exercises to help participants gain comfort and
confidence in: managing unrealistic demands for unhelpful treatments; making recommendations
around resuscitation; and introducing supportive care and
hospice support.
COST: $199
