Many communities in North Dakota do not have access to palliative care specialty services that could benefit
them. Access to palliative care improves the quality of life for patients and residents across North Dakota.
The goal of this TeleECHO™ is to focus on the relief of pain, and the symptoms and stress of serious illness to
help patients and their family members live peacefully and comfortably. Interdisciplinary palliative care teams
include but are not limited to: physicians, registered nurses, social workers, dietitians, pharmacists,
psychiatrists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists.
Learn about best practices and evidence-based care for patients with complex medical conditions through didactic
and case presentations. Participants will be able to:
Enhance your ability to extend palliative care for your patients with advanced serious illness
Acquire new skills, competencies, and best practices in palliative care
Present de-identified cases for collaborative discussion and guidance
