Lunch & Learn Psychosocial Sessions

L&L Psychosocial Sessions

“To achieve good palliative care, good psychosocial care is imperative. Members of the multidisciplinary team must arm themselves with good communication skills. In addition, healthcare providers must be careful not to unconsciously portray a sense of hopelessness to their patients with regards to the disease diagnosis or prognosis. Compassion and empathy should be their watchword. They should also keep themselves from dismissing anxiety and depression as understandable, thereby denying many of essential treatment. Finally, all procedures in palliative care should aim at ensuring the patient lives a life as comfortable as possible until death.”
