Scripps Health - Division of Palliative Medicine

Description
As leaders in health care, we know what it takes to manage a chronic or serious illness. That’s why we equip our patients with the support and resources necessary to achieve their best possible outcome. Dr. Sonya Christianson leads the inpatient palliative care program at Scripps’ five hospital campuses. The program seeks to improve quality of life and relieve suffering for hospitalized patients with serious illnesses. Scripps’ palliative care teams work closely with hospital staff to ensure patients have excellent symptom management and their families are well supported. Outside of the hospital, Scripps also provides palliative care to patients in the outpatient clinic and home settings.
