Supportive Care & Palliative Medicine

The Palliative Medicine service provides care to patients with advanced cancer or terminal illness in JurongHealth Campus. The service covers both inpatient and outpatient care with a focus on symptom management and end of life care. Supportive care and palliative medicine is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious illness, and it can be provided along with curative treatment. The service provides a holistic care approach via the multidisciplinary team that encompasses psychological, emotional and spiritual support.

We provide the following types of palliative services

  • Consultative Service – The palliative team supports the hospital specialist teams in the wards upon request. The team provides advice, guidance and care to those who have illness with a short term prognosis
  • Shared Care Service – The palliative team partners the doctor in charge of the patient to provide ongoing care for the patient and family in both the ward and clinic settings
