Title: Palliative care, hope and advanced illness management (AIM)
Biography: Maureen P Cardoza
This session will explore the role of hope and the clinician as a palliative care provider for persons and their families living with advanced illnesses. Advanced illness management requires a comprehensive team approach for people with serious chronic illness such as heart failure, kidney disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Palliative care teams coordinate the transition from curative treatment toward end-of-life care optimizing the quality of life in chronic illness and nursing management.
