Building a Palliative Care Program with Elmhurst Hospital
In this episode, we learn about new palliative care program at Elmhurst Hospital, a small community hospital in Elmhurst, Illinois. We are joined by program leader, Tiffani McKenna, MSN, APN, a nurse practitioner who manages the program, which was only running for a few months at the time of this recording. As it is a new program being built from the ground up, Tiffani shares the obstacles and growing pains she has faced, as well as satisfying moments — such as when the hospital and community began to acknowledge the importance of palliative care for its patients.
