Inpatient Palliative Care

Palliative care aims to relieve or ease the symptoms of a disease, and the suffering of individuals and their families who face a life-limiting illness.

The Palliative/End-of-Life Care program provides comfort and support to patients and families. Patient care focuses on maintaining dignity, quality of life, pain and symptom management and respect for each dying person while supporting families through this difficult period. This may include planning for a safe transfer to home or hospice through partnerships in the community.

Patients typically have chronic or end-stage diagnoses requiring frequent, skilled intervention and monitoring.

Outpatient Palliative Care

Referrals to the Outpatient Palliative Care Clinic can come from a variety of sources including physicians and other health care professionals. Patients receive assessment and support regarding the management of pain and other symptoms as well as psychosocial support. Patients may be seen in the clinic, or in the Emergency Department.
