The Palliative care unit is located at Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and provides care to seriously ill patients with the goal of improving pain and managing symptoms while assisting the patient and family with establishing goals of care. The palliative care team consists of nurses, advanced practice nurses (C.N.S., N.P.), bereavement counselors, fellows, residents and physicians. This team is supported by chaplaincy, dietary, social work, case management and pharmacy services. They all participate together in daily rounds to each patient's room. Common diagnoses for those in the palliative care unit include advanced cancer, cardiac, pulmonary, renal, liver and neurological conditions/diseases.
