Webinar: Death over (e)Dinner: what’s your role in palliative care?
Talking about death is probably one of the most challenging conversations we can have with loved ones. When it comes to our patients entering their final year/s of life, it can be even more challenging.
At what stage would you handover all care to the Palliative Care team versus staying on the journey?
Presented by Senior Medical Educator Dr Daniel Byrne and facilitated by Senior Medical Educator Dr Simon Hay, this webinar is aimed at senior registrars soon moving into practice as a registered GP.
You’ll have the opportunity to discuss:
- your role and how to approach palliative care in a general practice environment
- the pros and cons of your involvement in palliative care
- a firsthand experience between a GP and their patient entering their final year of life
- the GP-patient relationship rewards.
Once enrolled, an email will be sent to you including the relevant details on how you can access the webinar.
