One of the objectives of palliative care for patients and their families is to improve their quality of life (QOL). Ensuring good pain and symptoms control for patients with life-limiting illness will help achieve this objective. This three-day workshop deals with aspects of both pharmacological and psychological issues on pain and symptom management so that patients with life-limiting illness are given the opportunity to live out their days with meaning and with as little distress as possible.
Thus, successful pain control requires a multidisciplinary approach to treatment that addresses all aspects of care and suffering. As usual, our workshop concentrates on small group settings and will be most beneficial to healthcare providers working in a palliative or oncology setting, and other related specialties, with a general interest in palliative care.
