VUB professor Wim Distelmans supports app to help care providers
Forum Palliative Care and LevensEinde InformatieForum (LEIF), part of the Waardig Levenseinde Expertise Centre in Wemmel, are launching the LevensEindeApp (EndOfLifeApp, LEA) for doctors and care providers. LEA helps doctors and other healthcare providers to support seriously ill or palliative patients and their relatives. VUB palliative care expert Professor Wim Distelmans is part of the project.
The app contains a lot of practical information about palliative care and the end of life. An overview of pain and symptom control (with attention to Covid-19) and all possible end-of-life decisions including palliative sedation are covered.
