Palliative Care

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative Care aims to relieve suffering and improve quality of life for patients with chronic illnesses.  An interdisciplinary team provides vigorous pain management and symptom management in conjunction with all other appropriate forms of curative medical treatment.  

How does Palliative Care work? 
The team conducts time-intensive patient-family communication to ensure effective care coordination, reduce anxiety, depression and worry.  The palliative care team may include nurses, social workers, chaplains, therapists, volunteers, and others, working closely with with the patient's physician to improve the quality of life for people facing any stage of serious, complex, or advanced illnesses. 

What makes Palliative Care special? 
Palliative care can decrease the length of hospital and ICU stays and ease transition between care settings.  Patients and families feel a sense of safety within the healthcare system while experiencing practical, emotional and spiritual support, in addition to exquisite management of pain or other distressing symptoms.
