According to Dr. Hendel-Paterson, he and his copresenters “hope that, after this session, participants will better understand primary palliative care, take ownership of end-of-life care of their patients, and will be motivated to increase skills in areas where they are lacking.”
Building on this idea of increasing one’s skills as a hospitalist, he emphasized the importance of understanding palliative care.
“The ability to practice high-quality primary palliative care is essential to being a competent hospitalist.”
