Our team and the palliative care unit

Palliative care consult team

The palliative care consult team is a team of interdisciplinary health care professionals who work throughout Sunnybrook with special skills in palliative care. The team provides special knowledge about managing patient and family needs and expectations whether these needs are physical, psychological, social or spiritual. The team also has a distinct function as an educational resource for Sunnybrook, a University of Toronto fully affiliated teaching institution, for other professional care providers and for the public.

Palliative care unit

The palliative care unit is located on the first floor of Kilgour Wing (K1E) overlooking a park-like setting. It is designed to create a comfortable home-like environment. Their mission is to promote the highest quality of life for Veterans & Community patients facing advanced disease at the end of life. With expertise in pain and symptom management, they provide compassionate, holistic care through the skill of their interdisciplinary team, and through innovative research and education.
