Symptom Management Guide for Health Care Assistants
We heard from B.C. HCAs (also known as Care Aides, Home Support Workers, and other titles) that they needed a tool with ideas of how they can support people experiencing symptoms. After much consultation with HCAs and nurse leaders, the Symptom Management Guide for Health Care Assistants is now released!

A collaborative space aimed to enhance educational efforts around BC and improve patient and population-level care.
Membership includes those from care settings not traditionally recognized as “palliative” such as acute medicine and surgery, to increase the spread of a palliative approach to care in all relevant care settings.
The network is intended for palliative care educators, clinicians with an educational role, faculty members of academic institutions, researchers, direct care providers supporting people with serious illness, health care students, and members of community organizations or private practice who provide education for health care providers on palliative care/approach.
Members of the Pall Ed BC Network have the opportunity to provide input to palliative education initiatives in BC, seek and provide feedback on other members’ projects, collaborate to decrease duplication and support mutual goals across organizations, as well as receive Pall Ed information and educational offerings.
