5th Annual Palliative Care Collaborative of Rochester Educational Conference

The science of palliative care is evolving rapidly. Palliative care is practiced by both generalists and specialists across a variety of professional disciplines.  This conference targets an inter-disciplinary audience of palliative care generalists and specialists from the Western New York Region to establish an annual venue for continuing professional education in the evolving science and practice of palliative care.

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

 - Identify three ways in which non- Chaplains can address spiritual and religious issues with their                     patients
 - Describe two possible uses of the concept of medical futility in severely ill patients and two levels of that       concept.
 - Explore and explain two ways in which mindfulness may enrich palliative care practice
 - Identify two new ways to enhance palliative care practice as a result of this conference.
