Join us for our next CPE Day to be held on November 24, 2017 in Montreal.
Palliative Care McGill offers a biennial, full-day, accredited workshop for all health professionals interested in enhancing their palliative and end-of-life care knowledge and skills.
Presentation topics are diverse and always relevant. In November 2015, we addressed palliative sedation (new guidelines), Bill 52, new directions in communication skills for end-of life physicians, medical cannabis (Quebec registry and indications for use), pain assessment in the patients unable to self-report, new guidelines for the use of methadone, and the use of methadone as a co-analgesic.
Previous topics have included family meetings; depression and its differential diagnoses; advanced pain management; anorexia, cachexia, asthenia; mouth care; radiotherapy in palliative care; ALS neuro palliative care; prognostic tools in palliative care; palliative care emergencies; delirium and palliative care, bereavement; and palliative sedation.
This workshop brings together professionals from diverse disciplines including geriatrics, emergency medicine, anesthesia, and home care, and provides an excellent opportunity for networking and discussing the challenges and opportunities of this rewarding field.
