New Webinar for Care Providers!


Palliative Care: Aligning the Team Around the Patient

Key questions to engage your patients in a primary palliative care discussion.

"Every care provider can be a first responder to help patients diagnosed with a serious illness explore palliative care as an added layer of treatment and support," says Elizabeth J.Collins, MD, Palliative Care Medical Director, Lahey Hospital & Medical Center. In this free recorded webinar, Dr. Collins provides a helpful framework of the 5 stages of serious illness and how palliative care can be effective at each stage from first diagnosis, through to curative treatments, to end of life. You'll learn key questions to start a primary palliative care discussion, and when to refer for specialty palliative care to help patients live well through serious illness.
