Food the Four Letter Word in End of Life Care – presentation at Tigh Na Mara Resort October 29 2011

I am looking forward to meeting with the Vancouver Island Hospice Societies on Saturday at Tigh Na Mara resort in Parksville.

Attached is the handout for those who are attending the session titled “Food the Four Letter Word in End of Life Care”.  We will discuss anorexia and cachexia, current research, and resources for sharing this information with patients and family.

For the PPT presentation, go to Slide Share – http://www.slideshare.net/LifeAndDeathMatters/presentations

For the article, “Anorexia and Cachexia” in the CLPNA CARE Magazine http://www.clpna.com/Resources/CAREMagazine/tabid/182/Default.aspx Once there, go to Summer 2011 (Vol 25 Issue 2) page 29-30.

Are these resources helpful to you? If so, how will you use them?
