A palliative care strategic plan may be an entire health region's plan, or an aggregation of the region’s sub-units’ plans. The plan may be specifically for palliative care or a general health service plan that includes palliative care elements.
The palliative care elements in the plan must include all of the following aspects:
A strategic plan typically has a mission statement, outlines a vision, values and strategies, and includes goals and objectives. A strategic plan may: serve as a framework for decisions; provide a basis for more detailed planning; explain the business to others in order to inform, motivate and involve; assist benchmarking and performance monitoring; stimulate change and become a building block for next plan.
The plan will ideally address both palliative care at the specialist level and palliative care at the primary care (i.e. non-specialist) level.
