CareForce is working collaboratively in the public to raise awareness about palliative care

Palliative care

 

 

 

 

 

CareForce participates in a dynamic group of health care providers called the Snohomish Palliative Partnership.  This leading edge group, spearheaded by the Providence Systems and Everett Clinic, has been meeting for well over a year.  Their purpose is to provide leadership and guidance to support excellence in palliative care and end-of-life care to people served throughout Snohomish County.  During the past 12 months, workshops have been provided by this group to teach the public about the Five Wishes program www.agingwithdignity.org . Physicians are attending workshops to learn how to have the difficult “conversation” with clients of all levels of health regarding what their goals are.  There is much work to be done; know that this group wants everyone to begin to plan their future health care goals and be thoughtful “ahead of time” so that their individual values can be honored in the delivery of their health care.
