I brought several “Caring@Home package for Carers” back to our office. I provided education to my colleagues on the use of these kits, who are now starting to implement use of them with client carers, who are deemed appropriate to use them.
I have implemented a ‘framework’ or guideline for our nurses to go by when phoning community palliative care, whilst they are with a client and they are needing guidance/medical intervention.
I have completed a PowerPoint presentation – Palliative Pearls of Wisdom – to be presented to my colleagues, which provides some more in-depth discussion around nausea and vomiting in palliative care. The second half of the Powerpoint is some really practical/helpful snippets of information for a deeper understanding of our role, to insight a powerful group discussion/brainstorming session.
