The Palliative Nurse Practitioner provides expertise in a
consultative role to patients with advanced disease requiring
palliative services in accordance with state specific nurse
practice law. Working under a collaborative practice agreement with
the hospice Medical Director/Team Physician, the Nurse Practitioner
collaborates with the medical director, attending physician,
specialists and non-physician providers as applicable for the
purpose of coordination of care to effectively meet the medical,
psychological and spiritual needs of the patient. This enables
patients to live life as fully and comfortably as possible in an
atmosphere where patients and families are able to share their
thoughts, hopes and concerns.
