Purpose: Many palliative care patients experience nutritional problems as their conditions progress. This includes those with progressive neurological conditions, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, as well as advanced cancer. Nutritional issues not only impact patients physically but also psychologically and can significantly influence those caring for them. The purpose of this webinar is to discuss nutritional issues faced by palliative patients, the importance of screening, identifying symptoms, and the nutritional interventions that can be offered from food modification and nutritional supplements, to more intense methods such as enteral or parenteral nutrition.
