LIVE WEBINAR SERIES:
PALLIATIVE SEDATION: MEDICAL, ETHICAL, AND LEGAL ISSUES
Palliative Care Physician

Purpose: This webinar will illustrate the complexity of the issue of palliative sedation for palliative care teams; it remains a controversial topic. The emphasis will be on the attention to nuances that such a subject requires at every step.
Why Do I Need to Know This?
The major goal of palliative care and hospice is to relieve symptoms but sometimes all possible interventions are unsuccessful. Team members need to know what else can be done to achieve relief from symptoms.
- Discuss the definitions and indications of palliative sedation
- Recognize the ethical and legal issues related to palliative sedation
- Discuss the pharmacology and implementation criteria for Palliative Sedation Therapy (PST)
