Evaluating Palliative Care


Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the situation of professional carers in the palliative care sector. It outlines the different issues faced by staff in the provision of palliative care using a theoretical model devised for family physicians. The chapter explains the different dimensions of this model including direct involvement with the patient and family, the needs and development of staff, and cooperation with other professional care givers. It also discusses the way in which staff may be used as patient surrogates.

Keywords:   professional carers, palliative care, family physicians, staff development, patient surrogates
