Recognizing and Responding to Mental Health Issues

May 15, 2024 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (PDT)




Roughly one in five Americans is living with mental illness. For patients with serious medical disease, comorbid symptoms of mental illness can often amplify distress, complicate disease management, and intensify the challenges of caregiving. As a result, palliative care teams sometimes struggle to fully address the unique needs of this patient population.

Please join us for a conversation with Nathan Fairman, focused on mental health issues in palliative care practice. The webinar will help the clinical practitioner identify and address mental health conditions that commonly occur in the context of serious medical disease. 


Nathan Fairman, MD, MPH is a Health Sciences Clinical Professor at the UC Davis School of Medicine. His clinical practice focuses on the care of adults with serious illness, particularly at the intersection of palliative care and psychiatry.
