Health Links and Hospice Palliative Care:
The South West Hospice Palliative Care Network played a key role in both Health Links Learning Collaborative Sessions this Fall. On October 27th , at our Cohort 2 Session 2 event in Listowel, Lisa Penner presented an overview of the early identification model and also reviewed the SPICT tool with participants. Weaving this content into our educational day sparked interest in how front line staff might identify individuals early in their palliative journey as potentially benefiting from the Health Links approach to Coordinated Care Planning. The SPICT tool was highlighted in the participant feedback as one of the most important things learned that day. Lisa also hosted a booth at this event and at our November 2nd Cohort 1 Congress event in Stratford, where she was able to engage in one-on-one conversations with many participants about how the palliative population could be supported by Coordinated Care Planning.
