The Palliative Medicine ProgramPersonalized Care for Patients and Families A Black couple facing forward and listening to a doctor

Palliative Medicine helps patients facing life-threatening illnesses and their families live the fullest lives they can, control pain, deal with the mental and emotional effects of a serious illness, and manage symptoms.

Each patient's wishes are taken into account to provide options that will meet that patient's needs and those of his or her family. Our multidisciplinary team of palliative specialists, comprised of physicians, advanced practice providers, nurses, pharmacists, chaplains, child life experts and social workers, provide compassionate and expert support to guide patients and their families as they cope with illness and the need to make difficult decisions.

The Johns Hopkins Hospital Palliative Medicine Program provides care for patients throughout the entire Johns Hopkins Hospital- including intensive care units, progressive care units, specialty floors, the Weinberg Building, the Johns Hopkins Children's Center and the emergency room, as well as the Johns Hopkins Outpatient Center and the Skip Viragh Outpatient Cancer Building.
