Palliative medicine is focused on relieving or reducing pain, nausea, and other symptoms caused by serious illness or its treatment.
The Palliative Medicine & Supportive Care team at Stormont Vail Health provides an extra layer of care to you and your family at any stage of an illness.
Palliative medicine is usually provided at the same time you’re receiving other treatments. For example, if you or a loved one is recovering from a stroke and is dealing with headaches or pain elsewhere in the body, a palliative medicine specialist can recommend medication or other treatments that can alleviate the discomfort.
For inpatients and outpatients, the palliative medicine and supportive care team is directly integrated with your treatment team and other supportive care. Some of the most frequent collaborations occur with behavioral health, physical therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, nutrition services, and patient education.
