Palliative/supportive care for comfort and quality of life
If your serious illness is accompanied by symptoms that affect your quality of life, you can find relief. Caring and compassionate professionals at the Palliative Care Program at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview, can help you manage pain and discomfort.

Palliative care focuses on all your needs, from physical to spiritual. If you have a serious illness, no matter what the diagnosis, of course we’ll work to reduce your pain. But we’ll also focus on your emotional and spiritual well-being.

To provide an extra layer of support, our palliative care team of doctors, nurses and other specialists will also work with your doctor. We offer this care along with treatment for any age group or serious illness. You can receive palliative care in the hospital or through our Palliative Care Clinic.

A leader in supportive care
Our expert palliative care consultation ensures that you receive the services that most benefit you and your family. This caring and thorough consultation includes evaluation with a doctor, nurse, clinical social worker and chaplain.

In 2003, our center was first designated as a Palliative Care Leadership Center by the Center to Advance Palliative Care and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Because of our recognized leadership, we train students of palliative medicine and other hospitals to develop and expand their palliative care program. Our program also includes palliative medicine and social work fellowships.
