The Council’s latest Healing Hands examines Patient-Centered Care: Case Studies on End of Life. People without homes experience complex health needs that become increasingly difficult to manage when diagnosed with terminal illnesses. Caregivers must implement patient-centered palliative care methods and strategies that ensure the patient is at the center of the treatment process and are sensitive to relieving suffering and improving quality of life.
This CME-accredited issue is dedicated to patient-centered palliative care for people without homes and presents five case studies that highlight issues and challenges that clinicians may face in providing end of life care to this population.
Healing Hands is designed by homeless health care professionals for homeless health care professionals, particularly clinicians and support staff, across the U.S. This publication is designed to help learners understand and apply information about effective delivery of health care to patients without homes. CME credits are available for reading the issue and successfully completing the post-test.
