Palliative Care Program Spotlight: Trillium Institute
Our palliative care program spotlight series continues with a fascinating chat with John Mulder, MD, FAAHPM, CHMD, the Medical Director of Trillium Institute and Holland Home Palliative Care. Holland Home began its clinical services in 2007 with home based and skilled nursing facility consultations, added hospital consult services in 2008, and outpatient clinics in 2011. Trillium Institute launched in 2014 with the purpose of developing a portfolio of educational resources for local universities, public events, professional schools and health care institutions, and also to implement navigation services for patients and families living with serious illness. Our chat with John covers how these programs have evolved through this growth. John is big on educating the community at large on what palliative care is and he’s a great spokesman for the benefits of palliative care.
