Navigating pre-hospital end of life care: A paramedic perspective
journal contributionposted on 27.03.2020, 00:00 by C Lanos, Alan BattAlan Batt
End of life care (EoLC) issues in the Canadian healthcare system are now commonplace. Palliative care and medical assistance in dying (MAID) programs are giving patients more options than ever before. Consequently, pre-hospital and community paramedicine programs now interact with more patients who require EoLC. This creates ample opportunity for combined growth in the areas of paramedic practice and patient autonomy. This opportunity for growth is not without caveats however. Paramedics now have a responsibility to both further educate themselves and their patients as they increasingly engage with EoLC issues.
