Caring for those at the end of life is both challenging and rewarding work.
Join us as we explore what it means to be caregivers – both professionally and personally - and how we can approach this willing task, not only for the health and wellbeing of those we care for, but for ourselves.
The ongoing Covid pandemic, and at times the increased virtual delivery of care that it has necessitated, have led to increased moral distress, burn out and a generalized concern over the state of health care and the delivery of services.
Connection, collaboration and the interdisciplinary team-based model of care are some of the tenets of the philosophy of palliative care.
By developing and fostering strong, supportive teams, each team member can practice to their fullest potential across the continuum of person-centered care. Facilitating collaborative relationships, advancing expertise among our community, providing core competency training, increasing modes of communication and team self-care allow the members of the team to care for each other and provide the best possible care to patients and families.
