Palliative Care Team at Beebe

Palliative Care is patient—and family—centered care that optimizes quality of life by anticipating, preventing, and treating physical, intellectual, social, emotional, and spiritual needs associated with serious or chronic disease(s).1

Although, palliative care has its origins in the hospice movement, its focus is on quality of life while patients face serious or chronic diseases and decisions surrounding their medical care. Today, hospitals are developing palliative care teams to provide compassionate inpatient treatment options. Patients continue to receive curative treatment with a stronger emphasis on quality of life with Beebe’s Palliative Care Team.

Palliative care teams serve as the liaison between patients, care providers, and families. Patients and healthcare teams report positive effects, including increased quality of life from palliative care services, in addition to reduced medical costs.2
