Recorded Webinar: Comfort, Compassion, and End of Life Nutrition Care
This joint Today's Dietitian and Becky Dorner & Associates webinar was presented on Thursday, September 22, 2022 from 2-3 p.m. ET.
It’s common for patients and families to avoid difficult and often emotional decisions about end-of-life nutrition care until the situation requires it. In many cases, nutrition care professionals are involved in helping patients and their families make those decisions.
