Topic: In-home palliative care management: What can be provided and how it can help
When traditional therapies fail, what more can we do to provide comfort and quality of life? This is a question asked by many oncology teams, and this session will share the many palliative options and approaches to care that are available for end-stage disease management from a hospice lens. Case studies will be presented to highlight successful in-home, client-administered care, including the importance and utilization of “Comfort Kits” to aid pets and their families during crisis episodes.

Exam offered and MVMA CE certificate issued following presentation.
