Abstract:
Mission Possible: The Interdisciplinary Approach to End-of-Life Care
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2001
Conference Date:November 10 - 14, 2001
Author:Fordham, Pamela
P.I. Institution Name:University of Alabama at Birmingham
There is a growing awareness of a need for substantial improvements in end-of-life care in the United States. The needs of seriously ill patients and their families are complex and multidimensional. From the interdisciplinary team perspective, even when nothing more can be done to cure a disease, much can be done for the patient as a person. The goals of care shift from cure to caring, comfort, and companionship. These goals can and should be pursued with the same intensity with which cure was pursued.
