The development and implementation of CraigCare’s End of Life (EOL) Trajectory tool came about because it was identified through interactions with residents and collaboration with care and nursing staff that while the end stage palliative care given was excellent, the early identification of residents moving throughout the palliative trajectory was lacking.
CraigCare’s EOL Trajectory Tool identifies the physical, emotional, mental and clinical presentation of the resident.
It provides clinicians with clear directives of stipulating the advanced care planning strategies to support residents in alignment with their palliative trajectory and ensures choices and goals of residents is paramount.
The tool also empowers clinical staff in making decisions for residents that are supportive of outcomes that promote quality of life.
Nursing staff often focus on improving clinical outcomes whereas this may not be the focus of the resident due to their palliative trajectory.
Evaluation of its success includes:
CraigCare Clinical Care Coordinator, Ryan, recently won the 2019 Aged Care Excellence staff award by Leading Aged Services Australia (LASA) across all of Victoria and Tasmania for his pivotal role in the development and implementation of CraigCare’s EOL Trajectory Tool, now implemented across all CraigCare care homes.
