Fostering Palliative Care Through a Statewide Coalition of Health Care Workers

2022

The USD Department of Nursing is leading a statewide coalition of healthcare workers to provide telementoring and remote support for palliative care. The purpose is to foster palliative care through healthcare collaborations in South Dakota and beyond. Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life for patients and their families who are facing challenges associated with a life-threatening illness. The program recently received a major boost through funding from the Bush Foundation to continue their training and education work. The immediate goals are to leverage and expand an existing statewide network of healthcare workers to implement the ECHO model for palliative care in South Dakota. ECHO will provide a centralized structure for distant providers and community health workers to obtain mentoring, case-based learning and training in culturally appropriate methods to improve palliative care for underserved populations in South Dakota.   At this time, the statewide coalition is working on a curriculum and is soliciting input from community partners and care providers. If you would like to participate, you may contact us at the Advanced Care Planning Towards Palliative Care website
