New Community Partnership Assists Physicians with Palliative Care

by kimbra on July 18, 2012

Palliative care presents its own set of challenges that can be difficult to navigate. AAMC now offers you support through our new community partnership with Chesapeake Palliative Medicine. When you are managing patients with advanced complex illnesses who are facing the inevitable end of life issues, consultation with specially trained palliative care physicians and nurse practitioners can improve outcomes for patients and their families. When you refer your patients to Chesapeake Palliative Medicine, they will help control difficult symptom, negotiate realistic goals for care, estimate and communicate prognosis, facilitate challenging family meetings, assist in coordinating treatment teams, and manage end of life situations. In addition to a physician order required for palliative consult, please
call 443-481-5663, or spectralink 4571
