1.00 CME Credits | 1.00 Contact Hours

Individuals with advanced cancer and malignant fungating wounds suffer from high wound and non—-wound related symptom burdens that can lead to functional performance impairment. Comprehensive, evidence-based symptom assessment and utilization of a palliative wound care framework, PALCARE, are key in developing an effective plan of care to limit functional impairment. This session will provide recent, preliminary descriptive findings from a multiple methods study and utilize this evidence to explore a breast cancer case study.
