SWOT Analysis on Pallative Care at MHC
We have a strong and dedicated group of volunteer at the auxiliary that raised a lot of funds for the hospital
We have a dedicated Spirtual room for patient but may be under utilized
We are one hospital with two sites that means we can pool and share some of the recourses, staffs, training, equipment and etc...
We don't routinely screen patient for religious belief
We don't routinely ask for advance care directive at admission
We usually ask for Emgency contact or SDM but not promted to ask about pt's Advance directives
We start palliative care foucs care near the very EOL instead of starting palliative care along with treatment when pt is dx with life limiting illness
Is there a reason physician put patient on palliative order set only in the last days or hours of EOL
Should there be a checklist that will prompt MD to consider palliative approach along side regular treatment plan?
Patient are either or active treatment or deem "palliative" among nursing staff
There are not debriefing for staffs after a patient dies
For Codes also
We don't routinely offer bereavement counselling to patient and patient family?
New Hospice bed with new government funding
There are new awareness of Palliative Approach in health care
Would patient benefit by having volunteer visit them?
Especially those whose family is far away or does not have any visitors?
Do we provide enough spiritual and religious support for patient and their family member who are dying ?
Have we provide culturally sensitive approach to palliative care?
Cultural practice regarding large groups in first national community
Or have members of the community form a circle around the patient
Are nursing staff aware of those practices?
Is there a platform to among staff to share their experience
We have an aging population
We are in a isolated community with limited LTC beds and community resource
The implantation of MAiD
Would that be done on the unit? Would patient given the option?
