“Making the case” is a chore many clinical and administrative leaders need to undertake if they want to create, sustain or expand a palliative care service.
Stakeholders who would be expected to support or refer to a palliative care service need to understand deficits or improvement opportunities in existing care processes, how a palliative care service could help with those issues, and the probability that a palliative care service would be feasible and sustainable from a fiscal perspective. Gathering evidence and information to address all three of those topics can be time consuming.
In this webinar we will review six new free or low-cost resources that can make “making the case” a whole lot easier.
