Quality in Primary Healthcare Seminar Series

A knowledge translation project on benchmark End-of-Life care practices for the elderly in Primary Care. 

Presented by Dr Francis Lau
University of Victoria

Can the palliative approach that is integrated into the electronic medical record (EMR) of primary care physicians enhance end-of-life (EOL) care in ways that are measurable, scalable and sustainable?

The Knowledge Translation Project Overview:
Stage 1 : Assess current EOL care practices and identify requirements for best practices in EOL care
Stage 2: Design the set of proposed best practices for EMR-supported EOL care
Stage 3: Disseminate the proposed best practices to physician offices in BC through learning sessions
Stage 4: Evaluate the impact of the pro-posed best practices over time in a time series study
