Palliative Care is an extra layer of support for people with chronic or serious illness. This type of care is focused on providing relief from the symptoms and stress of a serious illness with a goal to improve quality of life for both the patient and family. Palliative Care is appropriate at any age or stage of a serious or chronic illness and can complement curative treatments. Palliative Care facilitates patient autonomy, access to information, and choice. The Palliative Care team at Pullman Regional Hospital helps patients and families understand the nature of their illness and make timely, informed decisions about care. 

How our Palliative Care Team can help:

  • Optimizing symptom management
  • Navigating the healthcare system
  • Medication review
  • Identifying available resources
  • Answering questions regarding follow-ups
  • Helping you and your family feel empowered and informed
