Resources for End-of-Life Care

These definitions and guidelines were developed by a committee of PACE medical directors, nurses, social workers and chaplains to facilitate the development of end-of-life care delivery within individual PACE organizations. Both palliative and end-of-life care are defined within the context of the PACE model. The guideline is a procedural document written in generic fashion in order to be broadly applicable to a range of interested PACE organizations. The 10 major topics range from the structure of a committee on end-of-life care to the provision of bereavement care.

NPA Palliative and End-of-Life Training Modules

Ten educational modules were developed by a committee of PACE medical directors, nurses, social workers and chaplains to offer entry-level palliative and end-of-life education to PACE staff. Each module has three learning objectives, contains 15 to 20 slides, and is meant to be presented in about 30 minutes. Many of the slides include talking points to help the speaker bring depth to the presentation. A notated version of each module also is provided.
