Organizing clinical care
This chapter discusses issues concerning the organisation and services of a palliative care unit in acute hospitals. In Great Britain, the traditional model is for hospital palliative care teams to work with other health care staff to provide specialist palliative care to patients in hospitals. The hospital team may also provide outreach services to patients in a community setting if there is no dedicated community team. This chapter also explains the importance of documenting the activity of the team, providing referral documentation, and managing the team's workload day to day.
