The Doris Howell Palliative Care Teams at UCSDH began in 2005 with a nurse practitioner co-rounding with the Bone Marrow Transplant service. Now they represent three inpatient consultation teams, the Step Family Foundation Inpatient Palliative Care Unit, a Palliative Psychiatry team, and a growing clinic team which all strive to function in an interprofessional, shared-leadership model of providing care. They provide specialized, team-based care focused on the relief of symptoms and stress of serious illness at any stage of disease. The palliative medicine faculty come from a variety of backgrounds and many have additional shared appointments in other divisions and departments, such as nephrology, neurology, and hospital medicine, but we will be their home. They also bring along with them a large, shared physician fellowship program that trains seven palliative medicine fellows each year as well as the only Chaplain training program in the country housed within a palliative care group. Over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, their clinic has been a top adopter of community telehealth, which they anticipate to be a major area of expansion for them over the coming years.
Researchers at UC San Diego are investigating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the health and productivity of early career scientists. We invite post-doctoral fellows and early career faculty (rank no higher than Assistant Professor or equivalent) to complete an online survey. All responses are confidential. Participants will be entered in a raffle for a $25 gift card. Click here to participate!
