An ageing population and high prevalence of chronic disease means there is an increasing demand on palliative care services. This also means occupational therapists are working with patients with life limiting illnesses across an array of settings. This webinar will introduce occupational therapists to the core principles of palliative care with a specific focus on occupational engagement and adaptation in the context of decline. It will outline the key assessment and interventions used by occupational therapists and the emerging research that underpins these approaches. Webinar attendees will be able to participate in a series of clinical scenarios to test and share knowledge acquired during the session.
