Palliative care, end-of-life care
Northwest Life Passages (NWLP) is a new collaborative service that aims to address shortcomings in care and improve services for people with serious illness and their families. The proposal is to operationally couple the outpatient palliative care services already provided by PeaceHealth and Family Care Network (FCN) with community-based support services being developed by the Whatcom Alliance for Health Advancement (WAHA). It is further being proposed that PeaceHealth and WAHA pursue a collaborative fundraising strategy that calls for WAHA to focus on the development of the community-based services and PeaceHealth Foundation to pursue support for the expansion of clinical services.
