The Willis-Knighton Palliative Consult Services team is a resource for you as you support patients who face advanced, progressive and/or chronic illnesses. We recognize the time constraints often imposed on you, making the lengthy and numerous conversations required by patients facing a serious illness, a challenge. We are an extension of your kindness and compassion.
As the physician, you are the team leader. We serve in a consultative role only, assisting you with any emotional, physical, psychosocial or spiritual issues your patient and their caregivers may be experiencing. Our team specializes in helping patients and their caregivers consider short- and long-term goals and planning for future care.
This is ordered like any other service. A written referral for consult is required. We operate from a centrally-located office at the new WK Innovation Center, so that we can easily serve patients throughout the community.
