The role of rehabilitation in palliative care
Is there a role for rehabilitation in palliative care?
People living with a potentially life limiting illness still have the ability to hope, dream and establish goals. As people approach the end of life, re-setting goals and establishing new found priorities is a constant task and lends itself perfectly to the tasks of rehabilitation. Steven Pitman will explore how we can assist people with the task of living as much as preparing them for the task of dying.
What will be covered:
- The model of palliative care
- Functional suffering
- Setting of goals and re-imagining life
- The multi-disciplinary team and their role
- Case studies
