Palliative Domiciliary Service provided by Malaysia Ministry of Health
Health Clinics in the states of Selangor, Kedah, Perak and Penang
Recent expansion of existing domiciliary service into providing palliative care for patients who are discharge home from hospitals or choose to remain at home.
SPICT is used as a tool to help practitioners identify patients for palliative domiciliary service referrals.
Specialized palliative unit that offers inpatient, outpatient, walk-in and consult service.
Other services includes regular visits to a number of non specialist hospitals and local clinics.
We just started introducing SPICT in consult service ( in non palliative units) to identify patients with palliative care needs for palliative referrals or to initiate goals of care discussion by primary team.
Will gradually also introduce this at the community/ health clinics setting soon
