1L: Hot off the Press: A Review of the Past Year’s Top Articles in Hospice and Palliative Care

Terrence Maag, MD; Miguel Ruiz, MD


We will review the medical literature in hospice and palliative care and review some of the articles we feel may be practice changing. We will try to review articles that may affect multiple disciplines and care of the total patient.

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

  • Adopt a practice change based on new evidence from the literature
  • Recognize significant diagnostic and/or treatment changes that have come about from research in the past year
