LIVE WEBINAR SERIES:
ARTIFICIAL NUTRITION AND HYDRATION IN PALLIATIVE CARE AND HOSPICE

Speaker
Speaker: Michael Mencias, MD, FAAHPM
Senior Hospice Physician
MJHS Hospice and Palliative Care

Purpose: For chronic progressive illnesses, the perceived decrease or absence of nutrition and hydration often leads to a request for these interventions by artificial means. Palliative care clinicians receive these requests likely more often than any other medical specialists. This webinar will review the evidence for artificial nutrition and hydration, discussing its benefits and burdens on common clinical conditions.

Objectives:  

  1. Discuss the role of “natural” nutrition and hydration in maintaining metabolism
  2. Discuss the routes available for administration of nutrition and hydration by “artificial” means
  3. Review the evidence for benefits and burdens of artificial nutrition and hydration on common clinical conditions
