Benchmarking EOL care practices for elderly people receiving primary care (Canadian Frailty Network-funded CORE Grant).
This 3-year project was designed to increase the uptake of evidence-based end-of-life (EOL) care for elderly patients with advanced illness. It involved the development of quality indicators associated with primary care best practices and their integration within electronic medical records (EMR) and take-up by primary care physicians in British Columbia.
Join Network investigator Francis Lau as he explains advancements in making EOL and palliative care practices measurable, scalable and sustainable through improved knowledge on identification, assessment and pro-active care planning and technology
supports. Dr. Lau describes how further integration of new care practices within EMR support healthcare that mitigates unnecessary suffering, promotes quality care for elderly patients with advanced disease, and promotes more efficient use of healthcare resources..
