Palliative Care



• Palliative care (PC) is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families.

• Delivery of PC via telehealth technology (tele-PC) has been proposed as a solution to increase access to PC in rural areas. • The feasibility, acceptability, and effectiveness of applying telehealth technology to PC remains unknown.

• The overarching purpose of the proposed study is to 1) evaluate the feasibility and acceptability of a tele-PC intervention for seriously ill patients, and 2) generate pilot data to better understand provider-patient communication during tele-PC consultations
