What is palliative care? Janine Stockley, Cabrini Health Palliative & Supportive Care Service GM/Director of Nursing, says:
“Palliative care is a lot more than most people understand. Historically, it used to be just end-of-life care.
We [at Cabrini Palliative Care Service] do provide end-of-life care, and we do it well. However, we also see a lot more patients for symptom management. In fact, at the Cabrini Palliative Care Unit, more people get discharged home with support than pass away.”
