A discussion around symptom control and anticipating decline at end of life will support clinicians comfort in providing end of life care in community. Symptom management in the context of Covid-19 will also be discussed with the support of resources provided by the Ontario Palliative Care Network (OPCN).

By the end of the session, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize the signs of imminent death
