Family Caregivers: An Essential but Often Invisible Part of the Care Team
Faculty and trainees within the Department of Medicine who are involved in the care of patients need to receive regular updates on recent advances and guidelines in the field of internal medicine. Clinical scenarios will be used to review the current management of common medical conditions, including chronic pain and opioid abuse. Multidisciplinary sessions will be also used to educate learners about human trafficking and the role of physicians in identifying and assisting victims in the community. The overall aim of the series is to advance clinical knowledge, enhance the quality of patient care, and improve treatment outcomes.
Physicians, medical students, fellows, and residents.
At the conclusion of the session, the participants should be able to:
Describe the experience and challenges faced by informal (family) caregivers and the implications for healthcare.
Describe the state of the science on informal (family) caregivers, with a particular emphasis on cancer caregivers.
Apply practical tips for interacting with and supporting family caregivers in healthcare practice.
