Thank you for your interest in the University of Colorado Neurology Palliative and Supportive Care Clinic. While palliative care is traditionally associated with cancer and end-of-life care (hospice), this field has expanded to assist persons affected by other serious illnesses and at any point where people are struggling during their disease course, including diagnosis. Patients and families affected by neurological conditions have significant and unique needs, including hard-to-control symptoms, long disease course, uncertain prognosis and caregiver strain.
We strive to improve the lives of patients and families struggling with any neurological or neurosurgical condition by addressing these sources of suffering through focused medical symptom management, psychosocial assistance, and spiritual support. To meet these complex needs, we have created a team-based clinic that includes a neurologist, nurse, social worker and chaplain. We also allow for extra time for visits and encourage all involved family and caregivers to join the patient in these visits.
Some of the specific issues we can assist with include:
