Order sets for improving palliative care: a conversation with palliative care physician Dr. Melanie Leger

Strengthening a Palliative Approach in Long-Term Care

23-10-2023 • 13 mins

Dr. Melanie Leger is a palliative care physician in Moncton, New Brunswick. She recently developed standardized templates for order sets in palliative, to help guide community and long-term care health professionals as they review and update palliative protocols. The templates also increase efficiency by adding medication quantities and refill orders that can double as a prescription.

"Some of our nursing homes had order sets, but some didn't. This project made me realize that some of these order sets were sometimes dated. It made me think that having it reviewed by palliative care specialists can help make sure they are up to date and evidence-based."

The SPA-LTC podcast has been selected by Feedspot as one of the Top 15 Long Term Care Podcasts on the web!
