We are expanding our supportive care services to include a robust system palliative medicine program to care for patients of all ages with serious illness and chronic disease. Our goals are to improve quality of life and overall health care experience by reducing symptom burden and psychosocial distress while continuing curative therapies and assisting the primary physician and other specialists to more completely care for the whole person and family along with the disease process.
Reporting to the INTEGRIS Hospice and Palliative Care Program Director, this physician position will be responsible for provision of palliative care consultations, via in person and telemedicine visits, within INTEGRIS hospitals and clinics as well as supervisory responsibilities for the APRNs dedicated to the palliative care team.
Duties will include consulting with attending physician and the interdisciplinary team to establish a written plan of care and facilitate access to appropriate supportive care services. In addition, the physician will participate weekly in the interdisciplinary team meetings to review active cases and documentation.
