The Palliative Care Partnership

Ask how palliative care can benefit your patients.

In patients with a terminal diagnosis or complex co-morbidity, the physician-patient relationship can often become strained. Frequent hospital admissions, unmanageable pain and nausea, ravaging symptoms, and uncontrollable fear or distress are common.     

In greater than 90 percent of such cases, a palliative specialist can help the primary care physician get pain and other symptoms under control, and help patients and families manage emotional distress.

According to the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization, collaboration between physicians and palliative care organizations creates clinical benefits including:

  • Reduced symptom burden
  • Care concordant with patient-family preferences
  • Patient-family professional consensus on the goal of medical care
  • Improved patient and family satisfaction
  • Reduced costs via shortened length of hospital stays and more appropriate treatment
