Palliative Day Care in Practice

Julie Hearn

Oxford University Press

The literature provides very little direction on how to plan and establish a palliative day care service. Most reports have focused on the needs assessment or quality improvement activities undertaken by established services. This chapter aims to raise awareness of issues that require consideration, and some of the policies, procedures, and physical requirements when both establishing a new palliative day care service, and maintaining an ongoing service. The key issues for establishing palliative day care include needs assessment; mapping out a service network; referral criteria; service specifications; policies; marketing; and problems to avoid.

Keywords:   needs assessment, palliative day care, service network, referral criteria, day care
