by Amy, September 30, 2017

Dee Bustos, CEO, and Vanessa Valerio, COO and VP for Patient Care, were at the Harvard Medical School Center for Palliative Care (HMS CPC) last September 13-15, 2017, to attend the Practical Aspects of Palliative Care: Integrating Palliative Care into Clinical Practice, a course that is designed to offer physicians, nurses, and allied health professionals essential knowledge and skills to provide high-quality palliative care to patients with serious illnesses in a variety of practice settings. It addresses the assessment and management of physical, psychological, social, and spiritual/existential sources of suffering experienced by seriously ill patients and their families.
