Palliative Care Tasmania | National Dietetic Webinar – Nutrition and Palliative Care
November 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$22 – $44
Food is associated with maintenance of health and life, expressions of love and the celebration of important events. The inability or loss of desire to eat and drink can be perceived by the person and family as an indication that the illness is progressing and can induce feelings of anxiety, frustration and loss.
Questions around a person’s weight, food intake and nutritional supplements can dominate the caring agenda and need to be addressed directly and sensitively. This presentation discusses the value of food, comfort, and nutritional requirements at end of life as well as the importance of using appropriate language.
