How do you sustain a palliative care program in the community setting? According to Stacey Sharp, MBA, CHPCA, director of medicine services for Community Health Network, the most important thing is communication. In this episode, Stacey shares that communicating openly and effectively with leadership, referring physicians, community partners, and patients and families has contributed to her program’s success, since doors opened in 2006. At the time of this recording, her program has grown 364 percent — but not without growing pains, which she also details.
