East Haldimand Hospice has built a Clinical Group that works as an interdisciplinary team insuring that delivery of hospice palliative care is done so within professionally accepted standards of practice. This team has been instrumental in improving the quality of care provided to patients living with or dying from advanced illness. Success is evident in their collective ability to improve:
Collaboration and cooperation among health care providers who support patients living with progressive life-limiting illness and their families
The transfer of patient/ family information shared among health care providers
Advocacy for patients living with progressive life-limiting illness and their families
The knowledge level of health care providers in hospice palliative care
The next major project for East Haldimand Hospice Inc., as it pertains to the Clinical Group, is to collect statistical data that will validate the work they are doing within the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care “LHIN” system. This Project ultimately improves the chances of accessing Ministry funding to continue to their work and meet their goals.
The Clinical Group meets bi-monthly and welcomes referrals from any medical professional who would like to increase the options and levels of support for their palliative patients (and families).
If you or a group you are involved with is currently providing a service that you wish to make our Clinical Team aware of please contact Kathryn Stengel at firstname.lastname@example.org
