VNA hosts area healthcare leaders to discuss Advanced Illness Management and Palliative Care program


With chronic, life-threatening or debilitating illness affecting millions of people in the US and thousands in the St. Louis region, Visiting Nurse Association of Greater St. Louis hosted area healthcare leaders to discuss its program that will fill the gap in service for people afflicted with these illnesses.

Beginning June 1, 2016 VNA will introduce its home community-based Advanced Illness Management/Palliative Care program. VNA is one of the only community-based, nonprofit providers in the region. VNA's program helps relieve the burden of serious illness by providing exceptional care to patients and families through symptom management, complementing the patient's medical care with their primary care physician. VNA's program enables patients and their families to achieve the highest quality of life regardless of the type of chronic illness or the trajectory of the illness. VNA prepares patients and families to transition along life's continuum in the comforts of the patient or family members' home in order to address the physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual needs while assuring autonomy, access to information, and patient's wishes at the end-of-life.
