We are very excited about our palliative care program, which is growing rapidly to meet the needs of patients, families, and care providers across the institution. Our transdiciplinary team approach strives to achieve the highest quality in patient and family-centered care for those dealing with progressive illness and life change through:
- Symptom management
- Counseling to make sure that patients' preferences are understood and honored
- Facilitation of communication between health care providers
About our program
Our mission also includes the education of medical providers at all levels, across the disciplines of medical practice, to impact how care is delivered not only at KU, but wherever our graduates go to practice, in the state of Kansas and beyond.
Our one-year Hospice and Palliative Care Fellowship, when completed successfully, provides board eligibility in Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
