Who is eligible for Baylor Scott & White Supportive and Palliative Care?

Any patient diagnosed with a serious illness and/or the patient's family may be eligible for assistance from the supportive and palliative care team. It is important to note that although the patient in need of this service may have serious, life-limiting illness, they may or may not be considered terminally or irreversibly ill.

Supportive and palliative care is not the same as hospice. Patients seen by palliative care specialists are often also receiving treatments designed to fight serious illness. One of the best ways to palliate (relieve) symptoms is to improve the primary disease.

Palliative treatments may be used to replace primary disease treatments that may not be working or as a bridge to hospice services.

Supportive and Palliative Care Team

The Supportive and Palliative care team include:

  • Médicos
  • Nurses
  • Chaplains
  • Social Workers
  • Other Health Experts (occupational therapists, child life specialists, speech therapists, nutritionists, and more)
  • Pharmacists
  • Volunteers

The palliative and supportive care team may vary depending on the individual patient, their specific needs and where they are located. Team members are specially trained to meet the specific goals of the palliative care patient.

Benefits of Supportive and Palliative Care Consultation

Supportive and palliative care consultation has many proven benefits that include:

  • Improved symptom control
  • Decreased emotional hardship on patients and families
  • Improved care planning

In a study at one of the nation's top hospitals, palliative care consultation commenced when a patient was first diagnosed with cancer that had spread to other parts of the body. Palliative care not only provided aid for symptom control but significantly increased the length and quality of life of the patient compared to others who did not receive palliative care consultation.

Relief of Emotional Distress

When faced with serious or terminal illness, many patients suffer from depression, anxiety or other emotional maladies. We provide patients with the tools they need to cope with emotions that may be fluctuating during this difficult time, including

  • Anxiety
  • Depresión
  • Other mood disorders

Navigating Stages of Illness

Upon diagnosis of a serious or life-threatening illness, patients and their families may have a hard time coming to terms with and understanding how this diagnosis will affect their lives.

Supportive and Palliative care providers can answer questions, and help patients and loved one's transition through the different stages of illness. Individualized treatment plans can be tailored to the patient's needs, especially if other primary disease treatments are not providing the benefit they hoped for.

Spiritual Awareness

Our patients have access to a chaplain or other spiritual adviser of their choice as part of our care team. We have the resources to assist patients and their families with the spiritual aspect of treatment at any time.

Planning for the Future

Patients stricken with serious or life-threatening illness must often get their affairs in order. This can be a stressful and emotional journey for all involved. Our staff of professionals is on hand to comfort patients and help them to take an organized approach to what may be some difficult, but necessary decisions.

Symptom Management

Symptoms other than pain can cause distress during a life-threatening illness. Breathing problems, stomach upset, and loss of appetite, insomnia, delirium, and even itching can all be addressed by the palliative care team.
