Implementation of an Electronic Palliative Care Screening Tool

Palliative care adds expertise in symptom management, care planning, establishing treatment goals, and provides emotional support to patients and their families. However, identifying patients who are appropriate for this additional layer of care is often difficult. At the Penn State Hershey Medical Center, an Electronic Palliative Care Screening Tool was implemented to identify patients who are appropriate for palliative care consultation in the adult medical population.
