24/7 Palliative Support Line for Health Care Providers
If a health care provider is experiencing difficulty managing symptoms of a client receiving palliative care, expert palliative care advice can be provided by Palliative Care Resource Nurse 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, by calling 705-325-0505 or 1-877-235-2224.
Evidence suggests that providing this support will improve care, and may prevent unnecessary emergency visits and hospital admissions.
The North Simcoe Muskoka Palliative Care Network understands that supporting professional providers enhances their capacity to provide quality hospice palliative care. The formal education courses that we provide as well as the Palliative Resource Team are part of this support. You will see from this page that we have Interdisciplinary Forums regionally directed at the professionals. We have provided Links to several national, provincial and local organizations. You will find under Resources, presentations or guidelines that can be downloaded for your use. The section under Advance Care Planning reflects available resources and upcoming community information sessions.
