APN-Led Programs in Rural Areas

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Not all patients with cancer are treated in large academic centers. How can we ensure they receive the highest level of care in rural areas? What is the role for APNs in smaller centers, and how can we maximize our education and expertise to provide innovative and safe care to patients and their families? You’ll discuss the effectiveness and acceptability of telehealth and gain a better understanding of APN-led programs and initiatives that have improved access to care and quality of life for those who are treated far from metropolitan centers.

Palliative Care APN/Coordinator of PC Consult Service, Whidbey General Hospital & Clinics
I started a new Palliative Care (PC) Consult Service in our rural health care setting on Whidbey Island. The vision was to see patients across the continuum of care that we serve. I see patients inpatient, in the outpatient oncology clinic, and in home settings to meet their PC needs. If you are interested in finding ways to pitch your program, nuts and bolts, or ways to partner you oncology care with palliative care, ask me!
