What will this community look like?
As part of an ongoing project to enhance the palliative care experiences of people living with and dying from heart failure, we want to build a community of practice to help engage professionals, recognise the unique needs of this group of people and consider ways together to create person centred and integrated care across disciplines, organisations and specialties.
By attending this community of practice you will:
- Be aware of the palliative care needs of people living with and dying from heart failure with an increased understanding of when to refer to palliative care services.
- Be confident in basic symptom management arising from advancing heart failurex.
- Know more about how to optimise quality of life for people living with heart failure.
- Be prepared to engage in courageous and sensitive conversations about future care options and decisions.
- Be clear about timing and approach for challenging conversations and decisions related to deactivation of ICDs and similar.
