Getting started: structure and function of the team
This chapter discusses the ideal structure and function of a palliative care team in an acute hospital. According to ‘The 2004 Manual for Cancer Services’, the core team should include, as a minimum, a palliative medicine specialist, a palliative care nurse specialist, and a multi-disciplinary team coordinator/secretary. This chapter also provides recommendations concerning the setting up of a new team or developing an established team, operational policies, and the management of the team.
