Providence Oregon Palliative Care Team (Connections) is a palliative care consultation service for patients—and families of those patients--living with a serious illness. The goal of our specially trained doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, clinical social workers, and chaplains is to help you and your family attain your best quality of life. Our team provides “whole person” care – we listen to, and treat, the person and not just the illness. We work closely with you, your family, and your doctor to understand how your medical condition is impacting your life. We’ll talk with you about what’s most important in your life. We want to know what “good quality of life” looks like to you. We can then help outline a plan of care to support your needs, now and into the future. We’ll explain how to best sustain your quality of life.
We also partner with other healthcare services. We can connect you and your family with resources intended to provide relief from physical, spiritual, and emotional symptoms.
If you have questions or would like to schedule a consultation, please give us a call.
