Join us for this new online series!
Primary care professionals who are interested in providing, or are already providing, palliative care for their patients are encouraged to attend the practical, online series, “Palliative Care in Frontenac, Lennox, and Addington: An Ontario Health Team Perspective.”
Patients with palliative care needs are underserved in the Frontenac, Lennox, and Addington (FLA) region, with higher rates of ED visits and acute care admissions than provincial averages. There is a significant need to improve access to quality palliative care, and many people's palliative care needs can be readily met through their primary care provider with the support of palliative specialists, as needed.
The goal of this online series is two-part: 1) to provide educational pearls and practical tips to assist primary care clinicians in providing a palliative approach to care for their patients, including basic symptom management, billing tips, and care in the home setting, and 2) to provide access to local resources and support networks for palliative care. An update on the changes happening through the FLA Ontario Health Team Palliative Care Partnership will be discussed.
Together, we can improve access to quality palliative care in our region.
Unable to attend all sessions? We will record all Zoom sessions so that you can watch them on your own time.
- Online sessions will be recorded and will be made available a week after the online session is completed.
- Individual Fall Zoom session recordings & modules will remain available in CPD Program Centre until June 1, 2022.
