Palliative Medicine

Palliative medicine is interdisciplinary care that is focused on relieving physical, emotional, psychological, social, and spiritual suffering. It focuses on pain and symptom management for patients with advanced diseases. Help with preparation for end of life is addressed by planning and educating the patient and family. Addressing the current symptoms, deciding on life-extending measures, their benefits and burdens, coordinating care following hospitalization as well as planning for the end of life are all components of palliative medicine.

The palliative consult team is available in Albuquerque at the Presbyterian Hospital to assess the patient and initiate palliative medicine while the patient is hospitalized. Continuation of the care is provided by the Presbyterian Home Healthcare Palliative Care team that follows patients in their homes.
