Palliative Care Specialty Professional Service – Partnering with Primary Care

Our physician and nurse practitioners work to support busy primary care practitioners as an extension of their team. If you are a healthcare provider and have a patient who might benefit from palliative care please contact our team for a consultation. We will help coordinate communication between your patient, family and all other providers to support our patient’s goals.

  • We support our shared, complex patients with management of refractory pain, complex depression, anxiety, grief, and existential distress.
  • We assist our fellow healthcare providers in conflict resolution regarding goals or methods of treatment within families, between staff and families and among treatment teams.
