Facilitators and Barriers to Cardiac Palliative Care Clinic Development

Patients with heart failure frequently have significant disease burden and complex care needs. However, a recent study led by ConcertoCare Medical Director Todd Barrett, MD, examined how integrating palliative care as part of the greater care management of these patients can help to decrease symptom burden throughout the illness. The outcomes of the study found that integrating palliative care into treatment programs was helpful in guiding patients and caregivers in their health progression, and it could even prove beneficial outside a clinical practice setting.
