Networks & Task Forces
Midwest Care Alliance is involved in several collaborative efforts that are consistent with our mission.
DNR/Honoring Wishes Task Forces
Assembled in 2005, this group met regularly to address concerns related to the DNR protocol in Ohio, to strategize for improvements related to end-of-life treatment preferences and to consider recommendations for advance directives. The group is comprised of representatives from more than 30 organizations.
Most recent initiatives have included suggestions for ODH rule changes related to DNR and promoting the adoption of Medical Orders for Life Sustaining Treatment (MOLST) in Ohio.
Home Care Advisory Task Force
Representatives from the home care industry as well as the Midwest Care Alliance Board of Directors are assisting the formation and structure of services for our growing Home Care Division. In December 2006, the Midwest Care Alliance Board of Directors voted to begin a home care division, to serve home care agencies in Ohio.
The mission of the HVP is to establish an enduring network of hospice and VA professionals, volunteers, and other interested organizations working together to provide quality services through the end of life for all Ohio veterans.
OPPEN is a statewide consortium of pediatric palliative care professionals whose mission is to ensure access to quality pediatric hospice and palliative care for all children with life-threatening illness and their families in the state of Ohio.
Palliative Care Network
Consistent with the promotion of quality palliative care services throughout Ohio, this network was assembled to provide an opportunity to explore best practices and to collaborate with colleagues. The Palliative Care Task Force, a subcommittee of the Network, has conducted a statewide survey of palliative care programs, planned regularly scheduled meetings and sponsored educational offerings.
