The role of external health workers
This chapter explores the roles of primary care teams in relation to care homes and also of specialist services available to dying people in nursing or residential care homes in Great Britain. It analyses the expectations of both home staff and external health professionals, in particular general practitioners, community nurses, and specialist palliative care nurses in relation to the roles they believe they can play in caring for dying residents. The result suggests that interdisciplinary cooperation centring around the needs of a dying resident would benefit all the parties involved.
