Palliative Care

Palliative Care

Our Supportive and Palliative Care Program offers support to patients and their families members both in the inpatient setting at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center along with in the outpatient setting. Our team consists of nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, pharmacy, chaplaincy, and social work.


The Wake Forest Palliative Care specialists are committed to improving the quality of life for patients confronted with serious illnesses. Working closely with the patient’s primary doctor and specialist, we provide coordinated care consisting of:


  • Symptom management
  • Inpatient palliative care services
  • Outpatient palliative care services for patients with cancer.
  • Social services support
  • Physical, psychosocial, spiritual, and emotional support
  • In-depth discussion with patients about their condition and their treatment options


To receive help from our palliative care team, please ask your doctor for a referral. We are available to provide you with assistance either in the hospital or in clinic. Our hospital services and outpatient programs are covered by Medicare, Medicaid, and many insurance plans.
