Palliative Team

  • The Nurse Practitioner does a complete symptom assessment and reports to the Medical Director.
  • The Social Worker assists with emotional and psychosocial issues of the disease process to support the patient and caregiver.
  • The Chaplin provides spiritual support for the patient and family.
