About Fletcher Allen Palliative Medicine
At Fletcher Allen, we want to support hospitals and health care providers located throughout Vermont and northern New York in providing the best possible palliative medicine services for your community. We understand the challenges involved in this type of care – and the importance of clearly setting goals and expectations for patients and family members.
About the Rural Palliative Care Network
Our Rural Palliative Care Network, funded through a generous donation, allows us to share our expertise, as well as educate clinicians and community hospitals in our region about palliative care.
The network is an expansion of Fletcher Allen's Palliative Medicine Service – an interdisciplinary, patient and family-centered program designed to deliver excellent pain and symptom management, advanced care planning, and care for people with life-threatening illness.
The network offers an array of services for hospitals and health care providers in the region, including:
- Telemedicine consultations
- A 24/7 palliative medicine hotline
- Palliative Medicine Mentorship Program
- Site visits
- The ability to participate in weekly palliative medicine case conferences and online discussions
