Palliative Considerations for Young Adults: When Cure is Not Possible and Cure is at Its Best will be presented by Lunetha Britton RN, BSN, WCC, PONIV, St. Jude Children Research Hospital at this year’s Wild on Wounds National Conference in Las vegas September 7-10, 2011.
This session will look at two different patients that both have gross metastatic disease. These patients had a will to live that surpassed what is deemed normal. We’ll look at the steps that the team took to support them in their quest. In the end, the team approach allowed both patients to have the ability to face death and be at peace when it came.
