Why do you need to know about palliative care as a manual therapy practitioner? Palliative Care – is the active care of patients whose disease is not responsive to curative treatment.
This conference will introduce you to the key stakeholders in the multidisciplinary palliative care team. It will cover the care pathways set out in the UK for end of life care including the NICE guidelines.
The conference will outline a path for manual therapy practitioners to embark on a career in palliative care. You will have the opportunity to engage with specialists in the management of pain in frail older adults.
The workshops run after lunch will enable you to physically experience two of the hands-on therapies popular in end of life care. Case studies of palliative care scenarios in the community setting will enable you to take the first steps in engaging with this growing patient base.
The conference takes place at University College of Osteopathy in London. For more information visit Palliative Care for Manual Therapists
