Training and Support Videos

These five videos were created to meet a need for education to critical care unit team members about palliative care and related topics. The Critical Care Unit/Palliative Care Initiative at St. Peter Hospital in Olympia, WA (an interdisciplinary collaboration between the critical care and palliative care consult teams) identified this need as part of an initial needs assessment in Fall, 2013. The videos, created by Dr. Sarah Merrifield, were funded by a grant from the Providence Foundation at St. Peter Hospital.
