Frailty & Palliative Care - Caring Across the Continuum Event
Participants will learn how to identify the medical risk of a patient, their vulnerability to adverse outcomes and the appropriateness of their goals and expectations, through the evidence-based metric, frailty. Frailty is the best metric for determining risk thus framing a truly person-centered plan of care. As a patient’s frailty becomes more severe, it is important for clinicians to deliver palliative care focused on relief of discomfort and optimal quality of life. There will be an overview of palliative care and interventions and impacts across the continuum will be discussed. In closing, participants will engage in an open dialogue with the presenters and their colleagues on the topic of frailty and palliative care.
