Course

This training course educates healthcare providers on the importance of quality end-of-life care.

These illnesses typically require extensive care for days, weeks, or even months.

Who is involved in End-of-Life Care?

In any healthcare setting, the patient is typically treated by a variety of medical staff to achieve the best quality care possible. Additionally, the team that cares for a dying patient is very similar, as it consists of several team members all with different roles. The hospice physician is in charge of the dying patient’s care. However, coordination with an interprofessional healthcare team is still essential. In addition, this team includes therapists, nurses, social workers, and spiritual providers.

Tools for the Best Quality Care

Interprofessional care also requires efficient communication between team members. This can be expedited through the use of communication tools like the Milestones Communication Approach and SBAR. Moreover, these tools facilitate efficient and effective communication of critical patient information among members of the healthcare team.

Furthermore, by facilitating the exchange of critical information for patient safety, these communication platforms improve the standard of care across disciplines. Likewise, numerous studies have shown that improved patient outcomes result from keeping all members of the healthcare team updated on the state of patients and any changes to those statuses.

Because of this, all healthcare team members need to be aware of their roles with patients and other disciplines engaged in patient care to provide the best possible treatment.
