Topic: Philosophy of hospice and palliative care
There is a common misperception that hospice = imminent death, which is far from the truth. During this 30-minute introductory session, the presenters will discuss hospice and palliative care concepts with a special focus on how palliative care can augment the care provided by the oncology team. An interactive discussion around the personal challenges faced by the audience as end of life nears will help guide context for the following sessions.

Exam offered and MVMA CE certificate issued following presentation.


To understand the role that hospice and palliative care can play in end of life
To recognize psychosocial factors that contribute to the care of a pet
To recognize that hospice is a mindset that can be adopted by anyone on the medical team
