Patient outcomes, acceptability, and service satisfaction related to videoconferencing with palliative care patients at home.

Community palliative care services often deliver care with poor resources, contributing to inequitable service delivery. Videoconferencing enhances access to palliative care, however there are few studies that have examined the impact on service satisfaction and patients’ symptom distress.

Scott Handsaker, Nurse Practitioner – Palliative Care at the Coffs Harbour Health Campus conducted research to identify whether portable videoconferencing solutions are a viable option for expansion in the MNCLHD. The research has been evaluated and prepared for submission into a palliative journal over the coming months.

We are proud to announce that on Thursday 17 June, Scott will share an overview of his quantitative multiple-baseline quasi-experimental design study, the outcomes and recommendations.
