Workshop Description:

Research indicates that clinical psychology has much to offer palliative care yet few agencies outside the VA employ psychologists to take part in their integrative teams. Approximately 3% of the US population experiences serious mental illness (SMI) resulting in multiple complications. As these individuals enter end-of-life care, teams may find these patients challenging. Clinical psychologists are uniquely qualified to work with individuals with SMI and can help the interdisciplinary team treat these patients more effectively. Skill Level: Beginning.

Workshop Objectives:

Based on the content of this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of the difference between Hospice and Palliative Care. 
  • Identify three unique skills that psychologists can bring to end-of-life care.
  • Describe at least two evidence-based practices for end-of-life care.

Skill Level:
