IPAL-EM launches to improve palliative care in emergency medicine
Date:11/9/2011

New York, NY (November 10, 2011)A new national initiative, IPAL-EM (Improving Palliative Care in Emergency Medicine) will integrate and increase the use of palliative care when seriously ill patients are admitted to the emergency department.

Despite growing recognition of the role of the palliative care in emergency medicine, integration of the two can often seem like a challenge of cultures and mindset. Supported by the Center to Advance Palliative Care and the Olive Branch Foundation, the new initiative will focus on areas of common ground.

Developed by an interdisciplinary team of experts, IPAL-EM will support both emergency and palliative care professionals and will act as the central U.S. hub for shared expertise, evidence, tools and resources. The goal is to promote a paradigm shift in the way that seriously ill patients, and their families, are cared for in the emergency setting.

"The emergency department is an underappreciated but key site for patients and families to receive palliative care. Seriously ill patients often experience pain and other symptoms that require immediate evaluation, excellent communication and 24/7 treatment," said Tammie E. Quest, MD, Director of The IPAL-EM Project.

Palliative care is specialized medical care focused on relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illnesswhatever the diagnosis. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in an illness and can be provided along with curative treatment. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and the family.

"Every seriously ill hospitalized patient should have access to palliative care, and the emergency department is no exception. We expect to see an enormous positive impact on both patients and their families," said Diane E. Meier, MD, Director of the Center to Advance Palliative Care. "This is a pioneering project, and CAPC is thrilled to join with the Olive Branch Foundation in supporting
