University of Maryland Shore Regional Health’s Palliative Care program is offered by expert physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists and social workers. The team works with each patient in tandem with family members and loved ones, primary care physicians and other medical professionals to manage his or her illness.
Patients are assisted with treatment and illness management for chronic and serious health conditions, understanding the disease process, complicated decision making regarding treatment options, planning for future care (advance care planning), pain and symptom management and coping with the debilitating effects of serious and chronic health conditions.
Inpatient palliative care is offered at UM Shore Medical Centers at Chestertown (via telemedicine) and Easton, and The Requard Rehabilitation Center for Acute Rehabilitation in UM Shore Medical Center at Easton. Patients may request or be recommended for an assessment for a Palliative Care consult through their attending physician or nurse practitioner, or through a family member or loved one.
