Marie Curie Palliative Care Research Department Seminar - 16th October 5.30pm at UCL, central London campus
Chronic breathlessness; populations and persons
Chronic breathlessness, persisting despite optimal treatment of the cause, is prevalent, disabling and distressing. At the population level it is associated with poor clinical outcomes and burden on health services. At the personal level it is experienced as a seriously restricted life with impact on families, but one which may be improved by interventions directed at the symptom itself.
This presentation will review the population aspect and then focus down to the individual and implications for clinical practice.
