Optimizing Palliative Communication Through Psychotherapy Best Practices and Skills

The principles of case formulation can guide palliative care clinicians to enhance their efficacy in selecting communication strategies, tools, and adjustments tailored to the psychological needs of specific patients and families. Ultimately, these skills optimize our therapeutic presence to patients and families as they process their unique experience with serious illness.

This session is led by two practicing palliative medicine physicians who have completed psychiatric residency, psychotherapy training, and palliative medicine fellowships. Their educational and clinical experiences across both fields give us a unique perspective on how optimal psychotherapy strategies can enhance communication skills for hospice and palliative medicine clinicians.
