Tampa, FL (Oct. 22, 2003) -- The role of caregivers in end-of-life care, compassion fatigue, and pain management for patients nearing death are among the topics that will be covered at the conference "Charting the Course in End-of-Life Care: From Research to Policy and Practice" Thursday, Nov. 6, at the Tampa Airport Marriott Hotel.
