In end of life situations, the goal of palliative care is to minimize suffering and provide compassionate care. Palliative care providers are uniquely skilled to help patients and families define goals of care at this difficult time. OPOs should recognize the value that palliative care can provide to potential donors and their families and work collaboratively to ensure that organ and tissue donation are included in goal planning.
Members of the donation and transplantation community serving diverse populations to include administrators, coordinators, physicians, nurses, surgeons, managers, quality improvement specialists, social workers, and other donation and transplantation center professionals and their colleagues.
At the end of the webinar, participants should be able to:
- Define the role of palliative care at end of life.
- State two ways that palliative care can assist the OPO with the referral process.
- Identify one potential barrier to palliative care involvement in the ICU.
