Palliative care is patient and family-centered care for patients with life-threatening, life-limiting, or terminal illness that optimizes quality of life by anticipating, preventing, and treating suffering. Palliative care throughout the continuum of illness involves addressing physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual needs, and facilitating patient autonomy, access to information, and choice. Allied health care and medical professionals who attend this conference will have the opportunity to learn from and network with providers, researchers, and educators in the field of palliative care.
