Medical Learner Presentation to Hospice Staff​

  • At 12:00 pm on the last Friday of the clinical block, we would like you to give a short presentation at the hospice on any palliative related-topic topic of your choosing.
  • The audience will include nurses, social workers and volunteers. The topic does not need to be medical. We have had varied topics in the past, from pet therapy to glioblastoma multiforme. It should be something that interests you.
  • The talk is not formal. There is no need for a PowerPoint unless this is your preference.
  • It should be about 15 minutes with 10 minutes for discussion. It can be helpful to come with some questions to stimulate discussion.
  • Please let your staff physician know if you need assistance brainstorming ideas.
