What’s in a Name? Palliative Care, Stigma, and Quality of Life

In this session, the presenter will discuss the construct of palliative care and its outcomes, explore the literature related to the impact of the terms used to describe palliative care on patient outcomes, and the role of the respiratory therapist in maximizing quality of life.
