  • Team approach. Board-certified palliative medicine specialists at Mayo Clinic work with a range of care providers, including your primary care doctor and other medical experts, pharmacists, dietitians, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and chaplains to develop a care plan that is right for you.
  • Expertise. Palliative medicine specialists approach each person's case with creativity and empathy. They will meet with you and your family to understand your treatment goals and develop a plan that helps you better manage your physical, emotional and spiritual concerns.
  • Continuous improvement. As a research institution, Mayo Clinic doctors continually study how to improve the efficacy and effectiveness of palliative care. You benefit from those treated before you, and your treatment contributes to new knowledge for the future of palliative care.
