As the complexity of illness managed by intensive care teams has increased, so have the challenges in providing the best holistic care to patients with life-threatening disease. This webinar will provide an overview of the principles of palliative care within the ICU and how this may be delivered. 

The purpose of this virtual meeting is to provide attendees with an insight into the challenges facing the intensive care team when caring for patients with serious illnesses that cannot be cured, including at the end of life.

Benefits of attending: 

  • Appreciate the physical and psychosocial consequences of life-threatening illness for patients and their families.  
  • Facilitate meaningful discussions about goals of care with patients and their families.   
  • Recognise the value of palliative care assessment in improving quality of care, and the models by which this can be implemented.   
  • Understand the complexities of determining appropriate treatments and levels of escalation.
