The following are areas where we have noted excellent and innovative practice at CSEP accredited hospitals

  • Consistent messaging across teams regarding the clinical direction and the supportive role of palliative care: it is not just for end of life; it is for pain management, symptom control and quality of life care
  • Referring families to pre-bereavement and bereavement counselling
  • Creating joint clinic with palliative care team
