Event Details:


End-of-life care involves a mixture of challenging concerns and dilemmas which can lead to distress in physicians, healthcare workers, and patients including their families. Similar to all other types of medical care, End-of-life care is equally as important and necessary because it aims to provide comfort to patients and their families during the final phase of a patients’ life. This Family Medicine Grand Rounds presentation will provide high-yield information regarding End-of-Life Care – including why it is important, what the challenges are and how we, as healthcare providers, can address the difficulties surrounding end-of-life care.


  1.  Understand why end of life care matters
  2.  Identify the challenges encountered during end-of-life care
  3.  Describe different end-of-life symptoms
