Learning Experience Offered

The Palliative Care Training Program at Morristown Medical Center offers experiences that can be refined based on the needs of the individual participant and can include didactics in addition to direct observation. Experiences may relate to:

  • Inpatient hospice – participants can observe the use of “scattered bed” approach to inpatient hospice
  • Palliative care consultation – bedside instruction on consultation etiquette, principles of pain and symptom management, facilitation of goals-of-care discussions and biweekly consult team meetings (including physicians, nurse navigator, chaplain, music thanatologist and palliative care volunteer)
  • Use of palliative care teaching tools – participants may use our established teaching tools, including our patient resource website, the ASCEND method of patient-centered communication, and the short video, “Anna’s Story” (DVD’s and facilitator’s guide provided free of charge) for use in staff education and community outreach.  We will also review the most valuable resources available through Center to Advance Palliative Care and other online education services.
  • Integrative medicine – exploring the role
  • Complex case management – participants can shadow our palliative care nurse navigator as she does emergency department (ED) outreach and assists in discharge planning for complex cases.
  • Creating a resident education curriculum
  • Making the financial case for palliative care
  • Quality improvement – review the role of quality measures and strategies for data collection
  • Participation in unit rounds (ICU, ED, oncology) for case finding and quality improvement
