The Fifth Annual Memorial Hermann Supportive Medicine Symposium – Improving the Quality of Life
The Fifth Annual Memorial Hermann Supportive Medicine Symposium – Improving the Quality of Life serves an educational opportunity for our community. Through engaging, in-depth presentations and a discussion panel, the speakers will enlighten attendees about emerging techniques in chronic illness care and end-of-life planning.
Supportive medicine is an interdisciplinary care team focused on improving the quality of life for patients and their families by reducing the physical and emotional burdens of people living with serious illness. In addition, supportive medicine helps address the psychosocial and spiritual needs of patients and their family members.
The symposium’s topics will engage individuals in numerous backgrounds, focusing on those specializing in cardiology, critical care, internal medicine, neurology, primary care, pulmonology and supportive medicine (palliative care) as well as advanced practice registered nurses, chaplains, pharmacists, registered nurses and social workers.
