Patients, their caregivers, and other members of the public also might be unfamiliar with palliative care, says Mei Kong, RN, MSN, assistant vice president of corporate patient and health safety for New York City Health and Hospitals Corp.
"We encourage patients, advocates, and family members to learn about palliative care," Kong adds.
One way to do this is through a palliative care pamphlet that talks about when patients/caregivers should contact palliative care, and what the criteria are, Kong says.
"A booklet teaches patients to speak up about their care," Kong says. "We hope we're fostering a healthy relationship and exchanging information."
Health systems should teach their staff to speak to patients about their disease process and treatment options, she says.
"Have patients tell us what they want, what their articulated goals are," she says.
Doctors and case managers might think they know what the patient wants, but until they ask, this isn't certain, Kong says.
"We have to communicate and ask patients what they really want and work with the team to make sure we're all on the same page," she adds. "It's an important component."
