The Dartmouth-Hitchcock Palliative Care Program addresses each patient as a whole person, including his or her physical comfort, confidence, emotional well-being, spirituality, and dignity.
Because family members are also involved in a person's illness, the palliative care team supports them and helps them feel informed as well. Since no two people are alike, our palliative care team works closely with patients, their loved ones, and their clinicians. Taking into account the patient's personal values and treatment preferences, together we discuss and create a one-of-a-kind approach that includes what matters most to each individual.
