2. Palliative Care and Truth-Telling

To recall, from the previous course, here is a definition of palliative care from the World Health Organization (WHO), 2016. 

Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.

In the following video, we will introduce the concept of truth-telling as it relates to palliative care. Once you have viewed the video, please complete the self-reflection below it.
