The MWS Home Care & Home Hospice team recently presented its research findings on how our home palliative care patients tap on its after-hours service.

Entitled “A Descriptive Retrospective Study of Afterhours Support Service by a Home Palliative Care Provider in Singapore”, the findings were shared via a poster presentation at the 15th Asia Pacific Hospice Palliative Care Conference (APHC) 2023, held in Incheon, South Korea from 4 to 7 October. 

The study focused on understanding the needs of MWS’ home palliative care patients after service hours, including interventions needed, in order to establish a framework for MWS to better address patients’ needs. 

One key discovery in the study is that the top interventions are nursing-related. To address this, it is crucial to establish standardised protocols for nursing issues and procedures that may arise after hours.
