Palliative Care: Myths vs. Facts Webinar
March 22, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
March 22 | 7:00 PM EST
Do you know the truth about palliative care?
MYTH: Palliative care and hospice are the same.
FACT: Palliative care is not hospice – a better way to understand palliative care is that it’s an extra layer of support. It’s not an “either/or” choice where a patient has to decide between receiving disease-fighting treatment or palliative care, and it’s not a last resort.
If you or a loved one are living with colon cancer, you know that the disease can affect your life in ways that reach far beyond cancer’s physical symptoms and treatment.
Join us with Dr. Manouchka Joseph, Palliative Medicine Medical Director from the Banner Medical Group in Mesa Arizona, as she discusses the myths and realities of palliative care and how it can help ease patient suffering, improve quality of life, and lend understanding to treatment options and achieve the optimal care outcomes.
