Palliative Care at STEGH
Our Palliative Care team helps patients and families improve their quality of life when facing problems related to a life-limiting illness. Our goal is to prevent and ease suffering, due to pain or any other symptoms. This can be helpful at any point during an illness, and not only at the end of a person’s life.
Palliative care includes:
- Pain and symptom management
- Psychosocial support
- Referral to (and collaboration with) home nursing and palliative care services
- Advance care planning
- End-of-life care
If you have concerns or would like to discuss palliative care at STEGH, please speak with your health care team.
