Palliative Care in ALS Clinic

Speaker: Raghav Govindarajan, MD, University of Missouri
Given the complexity of issues accompanying an ALS diagnosis, professional organizations increasingly recommend that ALS patients and their families receive specialist palliative care services concurrent with clinic-based neurological multidisciplinary care. However, no broadly accepted guidelines define the optimal integration of palliative care into existing clinical frameworks. In fact, most patients with ALS may never interact with a specialist palliative care team at any point over the course of their disease. This webinar introduces palliative care into ALS clinic and provides an understanding of their role and a frame work into their integration in the care of ALS patients.
