Palliative Care – The Importance of Nutrition

Good nutrition is important in caring for patients with life-limiting illness, not only for meeting the body’s physical requirements but also because of its associated social, cultural and psychological benefits. Appropriate nutrition and hydration is very important for those in receipt of palliative care.   Needs can change as disease progresses and can impact on symptoms.

This workshop will cover best practice in relation to nutrition and hydration and also explore how the relationship with food for those at end of life and their families changes. This is particularly relevant to catering staff working in hospital and residential settings, home care workers as well as care staff, nurses and AHPs.
