Discussion and review of cases are critical to the work of any palliative care unit, both for improving patient outcomes and creating learning opportunities. But if you don’t have a consultant to carry out this role, it can leave your clinical teams exposed. Our daytime board round service is a innovative, cost-effective way to support and enhance your patient care.
Palliative care cases can be complex; and when things change quickly on the ground, there isn’t always enough time for in-depth reflection. So it’s important to create a space in the week to review individual cases, with consultant-level input. If you don’t have that provision, we can help.
Our daytime board round model creates a dedicated time for your multi-disciplinary team to review their cases and complexities, supported by an SCUK consultant. They usually take place weekly, with the same consultant, so they can follow the patient through their care and spot any gaps in provision. Where possible, they include a Q and A session, allowing your team to learn by exploring what-ifs and alternative solutions for specific cases.
Partnering with us for your daytime board rounds will give your team:
