What is RPACE?
The Regional Palliative Approach to Care Education (RPACE) Team supports IPACE and EPAIRS. Below is our vision and we hope that after these modules you will be inspired to have early conversations with patients about what matters most to them.
We are shifting the culture across VCH to support the practice of an early palliative approach to care. We strive to achieve the benefits of communicating and respecting a patient’s goals, values and beliefs in all care decisions so that early conversations lead from foundational to exceptional care.
What is IPACE?
Integrating a Palliative Approach by having Conversations Early (IPACE) is a foundational skill that every member of the health care team can practice.
What is EPAIRS?
Embedding a Palliative Approach in Residential Settings (EPAIRS) is a foundational skill for all staff members who work in a Long Term Care or Assisted Living setting.
