Outpatient Palliative Medicine Through Home Care

Pain Management & Palliative Care
In-Home Complementary Care

Chronic pain is a widespread problem and remains the most common reason individuals seek health care. As the population ages, more people will need treatment for pain from back disorders, degenerative joint disease, rheumatological conditions, visceral diseases and life-threatening illnesses. To address this need, VNSW has designed a unique Pain Management & Palliative Care Program, a multidisciplinary team of highly-qualified professionals to provide home-based care for those suffering from pain.

Palliative care is for patients whose illness is not responsive to curative treatment. Focus is on the management of pain and other physiological symptoms, as well as psychological, social and spiritual problems. VNSW’s goal is to obtain the best possible quality of life for patients and their caregivers. Unlike hospice, where the focus is on the end-of-life care, palliative care can help patients and their caregivers not only in management of pain, but in other symptoms during the course of the disease, even during active therapy for the underlying illness.
