I. A LITTLE ABOUT US
The CFPCIE Community and Facility Palliative Care Interdisciplinary Education was first introduced in 1992 as one of four new palliative care initiatives for Ontario. This service provides education to front line health care providers. The education plan may include but is not limited to one-day (i.e., 6-hour) courses, refresher days, mentoring programs and videoconference options. The courses will use a variety of instructional methods, including coaching, course presentation and distance learning.
The sponsoring agency (transfer payment organization) is accountable for the PCIEF Palliative Care Interdisciplinary Education Funding, provided for the CFPCIE service. The agency/organization is responsible for submitting yearly service plans, budget, and statistics to the MOHL TC.
The PCIEF Palliative Care Interdisciplinary Education Funding (Nipissing Sub-Region) was transferred by the NE LHIN to NNPCN on January 11th, 2019. NNPCN Near North Palliative Care Network (Nipissing/Parry Sound) was invested by the NE LHIN with the responsibility “to act as the planner and administrator for the Palliative Care Interdisciplinary Education Funding for the Nipissing Sub-Region, including the annual Palliative Care Conference.”
The funding allows NNPCN “to work with palliative health care partners to build capacity in local facility and community settings, enhance an interdisciplinary team approach to care in the community, and help shift the care of persons in the last stages of their life to their setting of choice.”
The Chair of the PCIES Palliative Care Interdisciplinary Education Services is the representative of the banker organization NNPCN. The banker organization is accountable to the Ministry for reporting, good results and proper use of funding. The current Chair of the PCIES is Monica Do Coutto Monni, NNPCN Executive Director.
