Serious illness creates tremendous challenges for patients and for the people around them. Palliative care expands traditional medical treatment by using an interdisciplinary structure to deliver holistic care to people with advanced disease. Our goals include optimizing patients’ symptom control and functional status.

The palliative care team at Barnes-Jewish Hospital consists of a chaplain, social workers, nurse practitioners, and physicians. Each team member brings years of experience in palliative care, hospice care, and traditional medical care. Team members combine their expertise to provide comprehensive management of the physical, psychological, and spiritual issues related to a patient’s illness.

We work closely with Washington University physicians and other health-care providers to clarify goals and to coordinate workable plans of care.
