How Can I Refer My Patient?

Primary care physicians and community health care providers can refer their patients for consultation with a palliative care clinician affiliated with the Hospice Palliative Care Program at St. Paul’s Hospital and Mount St Joseph Hospital.

Patient referrals are seen by members of the Palliative Outreach and Consult Team, a team of advanced practice nurses and palliative care physicians.

Consultation is offered in many languages with professional translation services, as required. 

Who to contact:

Referring health care providers are required to contact the triage nurse with the consult team Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 

St. Paul’s Hospital: 604-258-3600

Mount Saint Joseph Hospital: 604-258-3951

The nurse will liaise with the patient’s Most Responsible Provider (MRP) in hospital to advise of the request for consultation.
