Palliative Care

“The goal of palliative care is to prevent and relieve suffering and to support the best possible quality of life for patients and their families, regardless of the stage of the disease or the need for other therapies… Palliative care affirms life by supporting the patient and family’s goals for the future, including their hopes for cure or life-prolongation, as well as their hopes for peace and dignity throughout the course of illness, the dying process and death.”

Excerpted from Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care, AAHPM

Huddle with OPO


Assessing Medical Suitability:

HUDDLE and DETERMINE:

  • What is the family planning?

  • Patient profile (contraindications)

  • Respiratory Effort

  • Neurological profile (imminent BD)

  • What is the probability that this patient will expire in the 60 minutes?


Suitability determined…

Now how do you determine the “right time to provide this family with their opportunity/option to donate.


Huddle with Care Team:


Elements of An Approach:

  • Is the Family Ready

  • Who do we include and why

  • When is the best time for this family

  • Where is a quiet, private setting


Timing Elements:

  • Family Considerations

  • Hospital policy

  • Pre-Approach Huddle


Timing of the Approach

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends that the decision to withdraw life-sustaining treatment should be made independently of and prior to any staff-initiated discussion of organ and tissue.

“Would this patient be removed from life-sustaining treatment whether OneLegacywas there or not?”
