Improving Access to Palliative Care in Rural Communities
When resources are tight, specialists are scarce, and coverage areas are broad, designing palliative care services in rural communities presents a unique challenge - but creative palliative care leaders are breaking down boundaries to meet the need.
This webinar, presented by Patricia Maani-Fogelman, DNP, and James Joseph, MD, will focus on innovative models of care delivery in geographically underserved communities, including telehealth, partnership development, and workforce deployment. Speakers will describe how to create high-quality service models, which respond to patient and family need, while aligning with community resources.
By the end of the session, participants will be able to describe challenges faced by patients and palliative care programs in rural communities; illustrate methods of aligning program design with patient need and resource capacity; and describe techniques for closing palliative care service gaps in these rural areas.
