Meet the Palliative Care Team

The University of Utah Palliative Care Service has been seeing patients since 2006. Our interdisciplinary team consults with patients and families while they are hospitalized and in our outpatient clinic. We are able to see patients in every unit in the hospital as well as follow them throughout transfers to different floors providing an important continuity of care. The most common request for a consult is for discussing and clarifying medical goals of care, however, we also assist with pain and symptom management, transitioning to hospice, and advance care planning.

In addition to our passion for excellent patient and family care, we are committed to the education of learners (medical students, interns, residents, fellows, and graduate nursing students) who rotate with our team. We are continually providing palliative care training to many hospital staff members.
