Physician Services

Apreva’s specially trained interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals provides the latest and most innovative approach to address all aspects of care.

What are physician services as they pertain to hospice?

We keep our patient’s Primary Care Physician (PCP) as the director of care. Our staff makes sure the patient’s PCP is informed of all of their wants and needs. Our hospice team also employs a Medical Director who oversees all clinical aspects of hospice care and provides medical education to community and facility staff. These physicians actively participate in the admission, eligibility, and recertification decisions and actively participate in in-home visits to hospice patients. The Apreva Medical Director provides overall direction for the hospice interdisciplinary staff.

Understanding California’s End of Life Act

Since 2016, California’s End of Life Option Act has given patients with a terminal diagnosis who meet certain criteria the option to request aid-in-dying drugs from their physician.

 This is not considered to be assisted suicide or euthanasia. The purpose of this Act is to give patients the option to take back control and choose when and how they die. After being in pain for so long, it allows them the chance to finally see an end date to that pain and suffering.

In this video, Dr. Flora explains what the process looks like when a patient chooses the End of Life Option Act.
