Palliative care consult team

Our palliative care consult team is a group of dedicated health care professionals working together to provide pain and symptom management regardless of stage of disease. We aim to improve the quality of living and dying for patients and their families coping with challenging, advanced or life threatening illness.

Our services include both inpatient consultations and ambulatory care clinic visits. In inpatients units, the palliative care consult team uses unique skill set to address the needs of patients who have been referred by their primary care team. In the outpatient setting, daily specialized clinics are offered to patients who are referred from their primary oncologist at the Odette Cancer Centre.
