Palliative Care: Aged Care Seminar

Registration is closed for this event

Why Attend

Attend this seminar to gain up to date knowledge on how to provide evidence-based care to older people, particularly those in Residential Aged Care Facilities, who may need to transition to, or who may already be receiving palliative care. Key issues discussed include:

  • How is care specifically delivered to an older person in their final stages of life?
  • How are symptoms such as oral problems, constipation, breathlessness and nausea assessed and managed?
  • Group discussion on transition issues such as nutrition and hydration
  • What role do Advanced Care Directives and End of Life Care Pathways have?
  • Information on how to access palliative care services
  • What psychosocial care of an older person best addresses a person's emotional needs?

A strong an emphasis on case studies and group discussion will encourage participants to engage with the seminar content and will ensure its content is immediately translatable to practice.
