Algorithms for Managing Pain and Symptoms (AMPS)
We provide algorithms for optimal medication utilization for common symptoms experienced at end of life. Our algorithms are continually updated to keep up with changing literature and drug pricing. AMPS are available to clients via our e-Tools suite.
Patient Information Leaflets (PILS)
We offer patient medications information leaflets that are written by Delta pharmacists with respect to applicable use in EOL care. Patients are used to receiving similar information handouts from their local pharmacy provider, but at times, it does not accurately address how a medication is being used in the hospice setting. For example, a medication handout from the pharmacy will tell a patient to not use atropine ophthalmic by mouth, but we often use this medication in hospice sublingually for terminal secretions.
LexiComp Online Medication Database
LexiComp is one of the largest online medication subscription databases. Delta Care Rx clients enjoy access to this resource via our e-Tools suite.
Overview of Pain and Symptom Management Video
We offer a 4 part video of Dr. Mary Mihalyo lecturing on pain and symptom management that can be viewed by our hospice clients on-demand. This video is perfect for a new hospice nurse or could be used as an annual competency for your current staff. CE credit can be offered for this educational activity.
