Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious ailment. Palliative care teams are made up of doctors, nurses, social workers and other professional medical caregivers. These individuals will administer or oversee most of the ongoing comfort-care patients receive. This workshop will provide an overview of palliative care, its origins, main concepts and components, and how it is delivered. The social worker’s role in intervening with patients with serious illness and/or end of life and their families will also be addressed.

Ms. Wilkins is in charge of facilitating care coordination to enhance and promote efficient and effective delivery of health care services across and among systems.
