The Palliative Medicine Consult Service
Compassionate care of the whole person
 
Palliative Medicine is compassionate care of the whole person and those who love and care for the person. This means that you and your family’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs are considered, with an emphasis on preserving your dignity and improving your quality of life. Palliative Medicine can be provided along with aggressive, curative medical care and offers the possibility of healing when cure may not be possible.
 
Palliative Medicine can be helpful to anyone living with a serious illness. We accept and support the choices you and your family make about your medical care and will assist you in communicating these choices to your medical team. (more)
