Palliative Care and Hospice: An Overview for The Health-Care Consumer

Thursday, November 16 | 6:00 to 7:30pm | Central Library, Aaronson Auditorium

What is palliative care and how does it differ from hospice? What patients benefit most from hospice and palliative care? Who provides hospice and palliative care? Where can this sort of care be received? How exactly does all this fit into the puzzle of modern health care in America?

Join Dr. Oliver Cerqueira to learn the answers to these questions and more, and most importantly how palliative care and hospice services help people with serious illnesses live life with quality and dignity.

Dr. Cerqueira was born and reared in New Jersey. After finishing medical school in 2004, he moved to Oklahoma and completed his residency training in internal medicine at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, Tulsa. Following residency, he worked as a hospitalist and in teh hospice field before returning to the OU-TU School of Community Medicine in 2011 as an assistant professor of internal medicine. He currently supervises medical and physician assistant (PA) students in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Additionally, he practices part-time inpatient palliative medicine at Hillcrest Medical Center and is the medical director for Image Hospice in Tulsa and Ponca City.

Librarians Take Albuquerque

Thu, 10/19/2017 - 9:33am -- apeterson

Blog Teaser

Earlier this week, several of our Schusteman Library team attended the Annual Meeting of the South Central Chapter of the Medical Library Association in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The theme of the conference was "the sky's the limit," and our librarians and staff spent time presenting about the heights our library has reached and learning about how other libraries are aiming high. Here's a run down of what our team did at the conference:

  • Aaron Pope attended the conference after receiving the Mayo Drake Student Scholarship Award.
  • Katie Prentice presented the paper "Limitless Literature Searches: Finding Answers in Questions," for which she won the Elizabeth K. Eaton, PhD Research Award for third place for contributed papers.
  • Katie also presented two other papers with Toni Hoberecht, "No Limit Library Staff Training" and "Library Staff Unlimited: Removing Barriers Between Circulation and Tech Services Workers."
  • Stewart Brower co-hosted a writing workshop as part of the pre-conference.

Make sure to congratulate our librarians next time you see them.
