How can the Home Palliative Care Nepal service help?
This service uses a short cell phone questionnaire about 12 common symptoms which a patient or her/his family member can complete and send over the phone to a place where the information is organized for a doctor to see. The doctor can then make recommendations about treatments that can help make the symptoms better. This service helps patients to get treatments at home.
The 12 symptoms are pain, nausea, tiredness, depression, anxiety, drowsiness, appetite, well-being, constipation, quantity and quality of sleep, and shortness of breath.
