When facing a serious diagnosis or illness, you may be anxious or confused. Whether you would like extra support for your medical care, a conversation about options and services, or an understanding professional to help you or your family in adjusting to new emotions or new situations – New West Physicians and Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers are here to help patients through our Palliative Care Program.
Our Palliative Care Liaison, Denise Bickel, PhD, MSW, LCSW, works in partnership with you, your family, and your healthcare team to maximize your autonomy and emotional well-being.
Palliative Care can be beneficial for all patients with life-limiting, chronic illness such as Congestive Heart Failure, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Heart Disease, Diabetes, and Cancer.
What is Palliative Care?
This partnership's goal is to provide patients and their families with exceptional, individualized care that recognizes and honors each patient's values and goals. If you are interested in a Palliative Care Consultation, please talk to your Primary Care Physician.
