Palliative Care Outreach Team

Good Shepherd, in partnership with community palliative care providers, offers in-home services to individuals with advanced progressive illnesses, and their families. We provide palliative care that is timely and pertinent to their personal goals of care. The family physician remains the primary health care provider.

Our clinical experts include:

  • Clinical Navigator – A palliative care nurse helps navigate health and community services required at end of life. The navigator provides coordination of community resources to help keep individuals in their homes and their caregivers informed and supported.
  • Palliative Care Physician – works with family physicians, providing home visits, and telephone consultation regarding pain and symptom control prescriptions.
  • Advanced Practice Nurses – work closely with the team to provide expert assessment and care.
  • Spiritual /Bereavement Clinician – supports individuals/loved ones with emotional, social, spiritual issues. They offer grief/bereavement counselling and assist with end-of-life planning.

The outreach team is funded through the Hamilton Niagara Haldimand Brant Local Health Integration Network.
