Conversations in Ethics: Dealing with the Reality of a Cancer Diagnosis - June 21, 2017

Miami, FL US
June 21, 2017

A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating for any patient. It requires the special skills of an oncologist to help patients through the rigorous course of aggressive treatment interventions, working toward a curative goal that may or may not be achieved. Please join us to learn about the complexities of caring for patients with a cancer diagnosis.

Target Audience

Physicians, Psychologists, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Respiratory Therapists, Clinical Chaplains, Pharmacists, Medical Students, and other interest healthcare professionals.

Learning Objectives

  • Differentiate between curative and palliative cancer treatments and effectively communicate the differences to patients.
  • Explain end-of-life treatments and “terminal care” with patients.
