Description

This session discusses the role of cultural influences and patients’ individual preferences on symptom management and care plans. This session was reviewed by Christina Faull and Carina Saxby and last updated in July 2015.

Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:
• Explain the importance of ensuring that a patient approaching the end of life is offered sufficient information, at an appropriate level, to be involved in decision making about their symptom management and care plan and has the opportunity to express their preferences
• Recognise how cultural background influences the individual’s approach to progressive illness/end of life, the meaning of symptoms for the patient and ways in which these may impact on management of symptoms and care
• Recognise the influence of one’s own personal beliefs and attitudes when deciding and negotiating plans for care and symptom management
