Symptom Management Part 1 – August

Our specialist Knowledge Exchange Team delivers high quality education through interactive training sessions. Our study sessions and courses are continually reviewed and updated, with new subjects added regularly to provide the most up-to-date guidance and expert advice, and to facilitate topical and diverse discussions amongst health care professionals.

‘You matter because you are you, and you matter to the last moment of your life…’

To enable us to bring this quote to life, we need the information and skills to manage the common end of life symptoms so you can say ‘we will do all that we can, not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die’.

Join us for Symptom Management part 1 to learn about the 5 common end of life symptoms:

  • Pain
  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Dyspnoea
  • Respiratory secretions
  • Agitation/restlessness

Other relevant but sometimes forgotten symptoms covered in Part 2 are:

  • Fatigue/energy levels
  • Oedema/ascites
  • Urinary output and bowel management
  • Sleeping
  • Lack of appetite and
  • Mouth problems and care.

Both courses will cover both pharmacological and non-pharmacological methods of management.

This session will be delivered online by St Catherine’s Hospice. You would need to have access to a computer or mobile device with internet connection, a webcam and a microphone. Please note attendees must log into the event via the invite received from St Catherine’s Hospice 15 minutes before the start.
