Supportive and Palliative Care

The UI Supportive and Palliative Care Service provides care for patients and families who face life-threatening illnesses.

This service offers pain and symptom management, support in dealing with emotional stress and social issues, and spiritual support. The overall goal of palliative care is to improve your quality of life while you are ill and can be provided at a hospital, nursing home, assisted living facility or at your home.

Palliative care is provided by a team, including a palliative doctor, nurses and other professionals. The team works with the patient's primary medical doctor to provide both inpatient consultant service and outpatient clinical service.
