SPICT Uses

Uses of SPICT

In the spring of 2018, the P-IPCP received funding support from the Canadian Partnership Against Cancer (CPAC) to build upon the foundation of P-IPCP to provide earlier integration and better access to quality palliative and EOL care in many care settings across the province including Home Care, Long-term Care, Acute Care and the Provincial Cancer Treatment Centres, Primary Care, Emergency Medical Services and First Nations Communities (a total of 40 health care sites).

One of the main outcomes of the project is to build provider competency in palliative care by adopting provider algorithms, assessment tools/resources including care pathways and guidelines for qulity palliative care. The SPICT tool has been identified by the Project Management Team as a potential tool that would be helpful to identify people with general indicators of poor or deteriorating health and clinical signs of life-limiting conditions for assessment and care planning. All providers will receive training on how to use this tool (in addition to Edmonton Symptom Assessment System, Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group Scale, Palliative Performance Scale) to build provider competency in palliative care. Once trained, providers will determine what data will be collected surrounding the implementation of this tool to support the Project and the work of our CPAC partnership.
