Palliative Care Case Conference in Residential Aged Care
The Palliative Care Case Conference Management Model for Residential Aged Care is a collaborative process of assessment, planning, facilitation and advocacy for options and services to meet an individual’s health needs.
The model involves a residential aged care manager or coordinator who provides a single point of contact for the older person and/or family members.
This case manager coordinates the health care team and services involved in the care and support of the older person and their family.
Complex care requiring a range of providers can also be supported. In the delivery of a palliative approach, a multidisciplinary team is generally needed to provide holistic care to older people.
