History of the Program

Hospice Palliative Care (HPC) Teams for Central LHIN was formed as a joint initiative between Southlake Regional Health Centre, Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care, and Central Community Care Access Centre. The program received funding through the Aging At Home Strategy in August 2008. Since then, we have been hard at work developing a model for palliative care in the community, and working to implement this model throughout the Central LHIN. The overall goal of the program is to enhance the delivery of hospice palliative care, and to streamline the journey through the healthcare system for the patient and family. Our 8 Clinical Nurse Consultants (CNC) and Nursing Manager are working collaboratively with the primary care teams in the community to support the provision of high quality hospice palliative care to patients and their families/caregivers in their homes and Long Term Care Homes. Regular Interprofessional Rounds have been established in each geographic area to provide the opportunity for the care teams to review patient care plans and make revisions, as required, to meet the changing needs of the patient and their caregivers. The CNC's provide ongoing education to assist the primary nurses to build their capacity in pain and symptom management.
