CONFERENCE CYCLE ON THURSDAYS | THE ROLE OF PSYCHOLOGISTS IN SUFFERING: THE PERSPECTIVE OF PALLIATIVE CARE

 24 Nov 2022 - 6:30 pm

This conference will address the contributions of Clinical Health Psychology and Psycho-Oncology in patients and their families, resulting from the experience of chronic, progressive and advanced diseases, in the context of palliative care. This approach to medicine is characterized by its multidisciplinarity, where the intervention and clinical evaluation of psychologists is of particular importance, especially in the context of suffering, taking into account the competences of psychologists and the specificities of intervention based on the humanist and relational dimension.
