Workshop: Controversies in providing end-of-life care for older people with cognitive impairment
October 13 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$1,180
The complexity of end-of-life care becomes even more fraught when the patient is an older person with cognitive impairment. Optimal care requires understanding our patient’s will and preferences, the rate and severity of underlying disease progression, and the availability and appropriateness of contemporary clinical interventions.
