Family Caregivers in Hospice and Palliative Care: Maximizing Support and Minimizing Burden – 1.0 credit

Speaker
Speaker Name and Title:
Myra Glajchen, DSW
Director of Medical Education 
Associate Program Director, Fellowship Training Program 
MJHS Institute for Innovation in Palliative Care

Funding Disclosure: No commercial funding has been accepted for the activity

Purpose: This webinar is intended to familiarize attendees with the state of the science regarding research and best practices in working with caregivers in palliative care and hospice.

Objectives:

  1. Identify the key research findings pertinent to family caregivers and family meetings in palliative care and hospice
  2. Discuss best practices for family meetings in palliative care and hospice
  3. Recognize the importance of integrating family caregivers into key events in palliative care and hospice, and describe the skills necessary to achieve this integration

Why Do I Need to Know This?
Preferred practices in hospice and palliative care call for regular patient and family caregiver conferences with members of the interdisciplinary team to provide information and offer support. These meetings give caregivers a sense of control over the process, and may help reduce caregiver burden. Yet clinicians often have difficulty with various aspects of family conference (e.g., initiating goals of care discussions). It is important for members of the team to understand the challenges inherent in these meetings (e.g., language and cultural differences, family dynamics, conflicts among family members and team members), and to be aware of the strategies used for integration of family caregivers into palliative care and hospice at key decision points. 

Target Audience: palliative care specialists, pain specialists, primary care providers, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, registered nurses with a specialty in palliative care/hospice, allied health professionals, fellows, residents, and medical students.

Criteria for Successful Completion:

    1. Attendance at entire session
