Challenge

For thousands of terminal ill patients living in the region, even if they can manage to travel to hospitals to get acute treatment, they face the inevitable suffering with complicated end-of-life challenges, whether they are treated in the hospice ward or they want to spend last weeks/days at home. The program has to overcome many obstacles, such as lack of trained professionals, financial resources to sustain the team, service provision to all care setting to ensure Continuum of Care.

Solution

The project will fund a well designed and comprehensive palliative care program in a selected area hospital, which just started a brand new palliative care program in spring 2017, in Beijing, China. The program aims to become a model to be replicated in other regions. Training of palliative care team, pain medicines, operation cost of the program will be covered. 50 patients and families are projected to be served including pain relief, symptom management and social, spritual support in year 1

Long-Term Impact

Establishment of the first comprehensive palliative care program is a milestone to encourage more support from local government, healthcare authorities to build more palliative care programs in the region. Programs will receive sustainable support to grow, mature and spread the care model to wider region and serve more patients.
