UK charity Help the Hospices has teamed with international partners to launch an innovative new website and free app for the international hospice and palliative care sector. The website, ehospice, aims to provide a platform for interaction, enabling users to share knowledge and information to ultimately improve patient care.
The website will feature news and events from across the sector. An interactive spinning globe function will allow visitors to locate hospice and palliative care services across the world. Access ehospice at www.ehospice.com or download from the app store.
David Praill, Chief Executive of Help the Hospices and co-chair of the Worldwide Palliative Care Alliance and Dr Liz Gwyther, Chief Executive of the Hospice and Palliative Care Association of South Africa, said: “The vision of ehospice is to be part of a networked world, collaborating and communicating to improve patient care. None of us act in isolation, although we may often feel that we are working on our own. ehospice is designed to reduce isolation in day-to-day hospice and palliative care work.”
