Self / family referral

Our goal is to improve access to hospice and palliative care services so that patients and families can access the care they need earlier. 

Who can refer?

Any patient/family, in either Mt. St. Joseph’s or St. Paul’s Hospital or residential care facility within Providence Health Care, can ask for a palliative assessment by our team. 

Why refer?

You can refer to us for assistance with pain and symptom management, arranging palliative community supports from hospital, establishing goals of care, or end-of-life care.
