Dear Doctors, Nurses & fellow healthcare professionals,
Palliative Care Workshop on Pain & Symptom Management (22-24 September 2018)
We would like to invite interested participants to attend our forthcoming 3-day Palliative Care Workshop which would be conducted from 22-24 September 2018.
One of the core areas in palliative care is the ability to assess and manage common symptoms that affect patients with cancer and other serious chronic illnesses. It is extremely difficult to manage the psychological aspect and other issues if patients are in severe pain and are experiencing other distressing symptoms.
This workshop will focus on the management of pain, other physical symptoms and address issues on psychological distress so that patients are given the opportunity to live the rest of their days with meaning during their end-of-life stage.
The workshop will be conducted in English and facilitated by:
- Associate Professor Dr Ghauri Aggarwaal- Consultant of Physician Palliative Medicine
- Dr Jan Maree Davis- SESLHD Area Director Palliative Care Service
- Dr Ednin Hamzah- Chief Executive Officer of Hospis Malaysia
- Dr Lim Zee Nee- Palliative Care Physician
- Dr Siow Yen Ching- Palliative Care Physician
It focuses on small group settings and will be most beneficial to those working in a Palliative Care and Oncology setting.
Registration for the workshop can be done on our website: https://www.hospismalaysia.org/painandsymptom/.
