Pain is a pervasive problem in caring for older adults, many of whom cannot verbally describe the pain. It’s important for health care providers to quickly and accurately assess for pain and symptoms through non-verbal cues.
This professional seminar, hosted by the Charles M. Neviaser Educational Institute of Community Hospice & Palliative Care and led by Dr. Mary Lynn McPherson, will provide you with a solid skill set that you can use the next day at work to care for patients with serious or advanced illnesses. You will practice skills in assessing complaints including pain, most especially including nonverbal patients. You’ll also learn about best practices in assessing and managing non-pain symptoms such as nausea, constipation, shortness of breath and agitation.
Attending this bootcamp will elevate the health care provider’s level of practice immediately!
There is no cost to register. Continuing education credit will be available to eligible professionals. A box lunch will be served.
