(March Newsletter) Do you know Methow Valley local Raleigh Bowden? Her state-wide team just completed a pilot of tele-health consultation for people living with serious illness in rural communities like ours, and they found great success. This is important work in our area, here's a quick summary of the Rural Palliative Care Network if you are interested:
"The overarching goals of this initiative are to:
assist rural health systems and communities to integrate palliative care in multiple settings to better serve patients with serious illness in rural communities
move upstream to serve patients with serious illness earlier in their illness
develop funding models for sustainable services."
If you see Raleigh in the community, pass along a thank you for her leadership!
