Event Details

In 2017, the Oroville Dam threatened to burst, multiple large hurricanes struck coastal regions of the U.S., and torch-like fires struck Sonoma County and Southern California. Then massive flooding struck. Is this the new normal? Who were particularly vulnerable in these natural disasters and how did they fare?

In this webinar, we will focus on what happened, from a palliative care perspective, and offer suggestions for providing care through future disasters.

1 CEU included for nurses and social workers.

 Webinar participants will be able to:

  • Provide frontline caregiver perspective on the immediate care issues for vulnerable persons that were exposed by the above tragedies

  • Discuss opportunities and gaps in plans for emergency care for the vulnerable exposed to these regional disasters

  • Describe tools and resources to help providers better care for vulnerable patients through future large scale disasters
