489 A New Model for Palliative Care in Corrections*

The presenter will discuss how the Network Palliative Care Model of Care set out to provide patients with end-of-life and palliative care based on their individual needs while also providing clinicians with the necessary skills and knowledge to provide high-quality care. Due to the unique challenges of correctional health care, the program was not able to simply adopt existing community models of care but rather developed a collaborative evidence-based model and care pathway for palliative care within correctional settings.
