Palliative Care Consult Team (Inpatient)

Offers support for managing your palliative care problems and concerns and assessments for palliative care placements for people with a progressive disease that no longer responds to treatments aimed at a cure.

Provides help to your health care team in managing your problems and concerns. This service is available in all care settings in the Edmonton Zone.

At home or in a hospital your main health care team provides your palliative care. A referral from your Doctor or Nurse Practitioner is needed when they want help from the palliative care service.

Our Services Include:

  • Providing consultative services and working closely with doctors, Nurse Practitioners, Home Care staff and hospital teams
  • Helping provide full care (physical, emotional, mental and spiritual) to the patient and family with a life-limiting disease
  • Assessing the need for transfer to the Tertiary Palliative Care Unit or to a hospice palliative care unit
