Palliative Care is a specialty that focuses on relief from symptoms and
stresses of serious illness.
The goal is to improve quality of life for the patient and/or family. Referrals
can be appropriate any stage in a serious illness even while receiving
curative treatment. We specialize in advance care planning and advance
care directives for all ages.
Appropriate outpatient palliative care referrals:
- Need for Advanced Care Planning or Code Status discussion
- Frequent hospitalizations
- Multiple co-morbidities
- Needs discussion for potential major surgical intervention or high likelihood
of tertiary care
- Advance Age
- Family discussion or support
A personalized approach to your health
