Palliative Care in Parkinson’s disease: Providing Patient Centered Care, Support, and Symptom Management

About

Palliative care is specialized medical care for people living with a serious illness. This type of care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family. Please join us to hear about how palliative care can help in the care of people living with Parkinson Disease (PD).  We will explore how palliative care teams can assist with:

  • Providing a diagnosis and prognosis with compassion
  • Discussion goals of care
  • Managing complex physical symptoms
  • Providing caregiver support
  • Addressing social, emotional, and spiritual well-being

Join us for a panel discussion with a team from the Palliative Care program at Swedish Medical Center in Seattle about the power of palliative care involvement in Parkinson’s disease.
