How Do I Get Palliative Care?
Get connected to palliative care at Stanford Health Care
Ask for a Referral
Ask your doctor or nurse to connect you to palliative care. They will send a note (or "make a referral") for you. Your primary care doctor, hospital team, or your specialist can do this for you.
Choose Where You Want to be Seen
We have services available in the hospital (called our inpatient consult services). We also have clinics outside of the hospital (our outpatient palliative care).
Our clinic palliative care teams provide: in-person visits, video visits, and telephone visits
Need palliative care outside of Stanford Health Care?
We understand that coming to Stanford for palliative care is not right for everyone. There are multiple choices for palliative care in the Bay Area.
