Your Care Team

How We Work With Our Patients

Treatment plans for an advanced or chronic disease often require different perspectives from different medical disciplines. At times, these treatment plans can be complicated and even overwhelming. Our nurse practitioners can help coordinate your treatment, including pain management, emotional health, goal planning and communication.

Delivering The Care You Need

Your Care Team will consist of yourself, your family, a nurse practitioner and your physician—all focused on education, pain and symptom management, complex health care options, advanced care planning, and coordination of care across the continuum. From time to time your team may include your pharmacist, registered nurses, social workers, dietitians, spiritual care counselors and therapists, as needed.

I believe that chronic illness has an effect on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of an individual. You cannot treat one aspect without treating the other.

Team Members

Patient

When you’re facing an advanced disease, you and your family will be faced with a number of critical decisions that will determine the course of your treatment, but you will not do so alone. Your care team will help you understand treatment options.

Family

An advanced disease also affects family members who often find themselves unprepared for their roles as caregivers, and unfamiliar with the effects of the disease. It’s imperative that family members understand treatment options and have a voice in patient care.

Physicians

Your physician wants what is best for your health; this often requires a multidisciplinary approach. Your doctor will be an important part of your care team and is always a part of the critical decision-making process.

Nurse Practitioners

Nurse Practitioners coordinate care for patients with advanced diseases in collaboration with the medical director, attending physician, specialists and nonphysical providers to effectively meet your medical, psychological and spiritual needs.
