The patient may also be examined remotely or given telephone counselling if needed, by means of video call, images and the test results.

Telephone Visit

The palliative care team contacts the patients and their family regularly to assess their condition and respond to any new needs as soon as possible.  Telephone visits are performed by a trained doctor, psychologist, social worker, or spiritual care expert so that they can be informed of the patients’ latest condition, guide them, schedule the next visit, and refer them to other units if necessary.
