Description

Imagine practicing palliative care in an integrated health care system with an established system of concurrent care hospice, with a nationally supported VITAL TALK-based goals of care program, and with the freedom to use a variety of non-pharmaceutical treatments and modalities.  We work collaboratively with specialty and primary care colleagues.  Teaching includes didactic sessions for residents, fellows, and faculty, in addition to direct supervision of goals of care discussions. Plans for hospice and palliative medicine fellows from the University of Iowa are ongoing.

-

The Outpatient service provides direct outpatient care, e-consults, and Telehealth appointments Monday-Friday (8 am to 4:30 pm). We see an average of 20 heart failure and oncology patients in concurrent care hospice—receiving disease-directed therapies and hospice. We have a Palliative Plus case management program for patients who are hospice-appropriate medically but not interested in enrollment.  Our inpatient service provides services during the day and rotating coverage on nights and weekends. Average inpatient census of  6 to 10 patients. Our palliative care team includes a robust interdisciplinary team including spiritual care, two dedicated pharmacy specialists, social workers, RN case management, and music therapy.

The candidate must be collaborative and enjoy working in an environment that thrives on continuous quality improvement while providing direct patient care, and teaching students, residents, and fellows.
