Palliative Care - Services
Specifically, Palliative Pain and Symptom Management Consultants:
- Assist service providers in the application of the Model to Guide Hospice Palliative Care, assessment tools and best practice guidelines
- Offer consultation to service providers in person, by telephone, by video-conference or through email regarding care (e.g., assessment and management of pain and other symptoms)
- Provide case-based education and mentoring for service providers
- Help build capacity among front-line service providers in the delivery of palliative care
- Link providers with specialized hospice palliative care resources
The service does not provide direct client/patient assessment or care planning. As part of an education/coaching activity with a service provider a client/patient may be present, however, the service provider remains the one responsible for the care. The service does not include responding to inquiries or education activities for the general public.Source:
