Home-Based Palliative Care
Building Operational Excellence
High Impact Practices in Home-Based Palliative Care
Evidence-informed practices in home and community care that result in better care, better outcomes and better value
The CHCA is documenting and disseminating five leading practices that facilitate the building of operational excellence in home-based palliative care in Canada. The interventions were identified at the 2018 Home Care Summit and reviewed for applicability by a panel of home care leaders.
These High Impact Practice initiatives were chosen with the purpose of impacting home-based palliative care and the healthcare by:
Promoting home care that provides evidence-informed service delivery directed toward the achievement of health outcomes in the setting that best support the individual and family.
Enhancing the effectiveness of home care.
Raising the awareness of ways that home care contributes to an effective health care system.
Mitigating rising healthcare costs and accentuate existing resources and expertise.
Enabling sharing and transferring of knowledge, expertise and experience through networking and peer-to-peer learning.
