Caring for the cancer patient in the advanced stages of disease is particularly challenging to the healthcare team. It requires attending to the many dimensions of care including medical, psychosocial, ethical, and spiritual needs. In its 13th year, the Updates in Hospice and Palliative Medicine and Physician Intensive Board Review will continue to offer healthcare professionals with educational updates to help them successfully incorporate new information into practice and take the board certification examination. Physicians, fellows and advanced nurse practitioners will gain the knowledge and competence pertaining to symptom and pain management, issues facing patients at end-of- life, and effective communication techniques to implement into clinical practice to improve patient care.
