Description

Veterinary oncologists work in a system which is both enriching and emotionally taxing, fulfilling and full of stress. The ethical terrain of veterinary medicine, legal status of animals, and economic realities of the profession provide a framework which is challenging for clinicians, who seek to balance patient and client best interests while optimizing care delivery. Palliative medicine has the potential to transform oncology practice, catalyzing a “triple win” - for patients, clients, and veterinary teams as goal-concordant care is more completely realized. This presentation will draw from human palliative medicine and key findings from the literature in its discussion of the palliative lens as an upstream initiative in our management of seriously ill veterinary patients.
