The provision of outpatient palliative care differs according to the site (home, clinic, multidisciplinary cancer meeting) in which the consultation is occurring. At each site, the team of healthcare providers will differ, as will the required communication strategies both within and across those teams. Outpatient palliative care can create opportunities for patients and families, including setting goals and matching care, particularly around the patient’s/family’s preferred place of care, enabling earlier palliative care integration. While the challenges to comprehensive communication within the healthcare team are many, an approach to communication between providers that mirrors that taken in the patient consultation is likely to overcome many of these challenges and, in turn, ensure that patient-centered care is fully realized.
