Taking the Next Step

Step 1:
Anyone can request a consultation. We start by conferring with your physician in order to determine if a palliative care consultation is appropriate.

Step 2:
If a palliative care consultation is right for you, our physician or nurse will visit you, assess your physical needs and provide emotional support.

Step 3:
We then make recommendations to the referring physician for enhancing your care and will provide follow-up. We keep your physician and other health care providers well-informed about the consultation, as well as any follow-up visits.
