Symptom science is becoming increasingly important as people are living longer with multiple chronic illnesses. This educational activity will describe the advances in symptom science that acknowledges individual variability in symptom experiences related to health and illness to inform precise strategies in developing optimal nursing interventions. Participants will earn up to 1.0 contact hour of nursing continuing professional development credit based on attendance.
