Palliative care is so misunderstood, but yet so very, very useful. If everyone knew just hope helpful palliative care is for the patients and families there would be waiting lists for folks to sign up! Hope you all will join our #LCSM chat Thursday night and learn more about palliative care….what it is and how it can make life easier for everyone.
The next #LCSM Chat will occur on Thursday, January 16, 2014 at 5 PM Pacific (8 PM Eastern). The subject will be “Palliative Care for Lung Cancer Patients” moderated by lung cancer patient and advocate Janet Freeman-Daily. Please note this discussion will focus on comfort care provided to a cancer patient at any time after diagnosis–before, during or after active treatment. We will not be discussing hospice.
#LCSM has invited several palliative care specialists to participate in this chat. Confirmed guests include @ctsinclair (Christian Sinclair, MD, #hpm chat co-founder, editor of pallimed.org), and @chatburn (Andi Chatburn, MD, kansascityhospice.org).
You can learn more about how to participate in an #LCSM tweetchat here. If you find tweetchats are not your cup of tea, please feel free to add your questions or concerns about palliative care in the comment section of this blog post by noon Thursday January 16, and we’ll do our best…
