Overview of Programs and Services

Palliative Care

This service forms part of the Family Practice/Geriatrics/Palliative Care Program. 

The Medical and Administrative Directors of the Program are responsible and accountable for the overall administration of this Unit.

The Clinical Leader Physician and the Nurse Manager of Palliative Care are responsible for the day to day operations. The Clinical Leader Physician provides clinical leadership to palliative care patients on this 7 bed unit, elsewhere in the hospital, in the Sackville Memorial Hospital and to patients in the community through the Extra Mural Program. The Nurse Manager provides leadership and ensures the care delivered is consistent with standards of professional practice and legislation and is in accordance with the strategic framework for Horizon Health Network.  

The goal of palliative care is to manage the patient's symptoms and thus improve the patient's quality of life.  Patients come to our Palliative Care Unit to receive the specialized care they need to help them feel well enough to go home, and as well to receive the support that is needed in the end of life phase.  This support is also extended to the families and caregivers of the patient.

The Palliative Care unit consists of 7 private rooms enabling us to give patients, families, caregivers and friends the support they need.  There is also a quiet room and a kitchen area for visitors to use.  Our patients are looked after by a health care team that ensures our patients and families/friends receive the best care possible.  This team consists of bedside nurses, a palliative care consult nurse, a psychologist, a social worker, a pharmacist, a spiritual care advisor, palliative care physicians and volunteers.
