Teamwork in Palliative Care
Barbara Monroe, Peter Speck
Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the effectiveness of palliative care teams. If the goal of good end-of-life care for all is to be met, palliative care professionals will need to extend their concept of appropriate team membership to include the wider communities in which patients and those close to them live and work in a more public health approach to palliative care. Palliative care professionals will need to transfer skills and knowledge to enable generalist professionals, community groups, friends, and neighbours to respond sensitively and appropriately to the needs of the dying and the bereaved.

Keywords:   palliative care teams, end-of-life care, public health, community groups, dying, teamwork
