Integrated Approach to Palliative Care in Acute Care (iPAC-AC) Webinar

December 4, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Many older adults in Canada die from life-limiting illnesses such as heart, lung and kidney disease, cancer, dementias and frailty. Of these older adults, the large majority will die in acute care hospitals where the quality of care has been reported to be one where patients suffer with pain and other symptoms, experience poor quality of care and are subjected to treatments that have little benefit in enhancing their quality of life. Building on our previous research we used participatory approaches to work with staff on acute care medical units to integrate a palliative approach into their practice.
