Palliative Pupus May 2023

May 15 @ 5:15 pm 6:30 pm HST

We’d like to invite you to our virtual only Palliative Pupus in May

Palliative Pupus is a unique opportunity to hear about a palliative care case. It is good for palliative care practitioners to learn and increase skills. It is also an excellent opportunity to learn about what palliative care really is and what our amazing colleagues actually do. Cases usually involve a range of practitioners including doctor, nurse, chaplain and social workers and cover physical, emotion and spiritual issues.

We are constantly impressed by how our colleagues go the extra mile to care for patients and families so please come to learn and invite colleagues. Especially as we are building the capacity to provide palliative care across the state, this is an excellent opportunity.

This month: Join us for a discussion about a young patient who benefited from home-based and inpatient palliative care as she initially beat the odds with cutting edge oncologic therapy prior to fulfilling her end-of-life wishes.

We will continue to meet virtually on zoom in 2024. In addition we meet every second month in person at the QCC and offer a hybrid zoom format. To include neighbor islands we will remain on zoom in a hybrid format.

The topic and zoom registration link will be announced in our 2024 newsletter prior to the meeting.
