Supportive and Palliative Care in the Cancer Center Lynne Taylor, MD, Neuro Oncology, Brain Tumors, Cancer, Neurology, Palliative Care Palliative medicine is a relatively new specialty (there was no board certification until 2006) and because of this there is a lot of confusion about the term as well as the place of palliative care in treatment. Palliative care ideally begins at the time of diagnosis of any serious illness and is provided along with chemotherapy, surgery and radiation therapy for treatment of the underlying cancer. Many studies in the past few years have shown that those patients who are treated with both active cancer care and palliative care have an improved quality of life and survival. (If you feel like you or your patient would benefit from a Palliative Care consult, please follow-up with the managing provider to determine if a consult is appropriate) https://www.virginiamason.org/Wellness-Support https://www.virginiamason.org/body.cfm?id=1175&action=detail&ref=1284

Virginia Mason Cancer Institute Virginia Mason Recognized as National Pancreas Foundation Center Virginia Mason is the only hospital in Washington State to be named a National Pancreas Foundation Center by the National Pancreas Foundation (NPF), and one of only 30 centers in the country. NPF centers are recognized for their focus on multidisciplinary treatment of the "whole patient" with an emphasis on best possible outcomes and improved quality of life. https://www.virginiamason.org/workfiles/clinicians/Contact-Oct-2015.pdf Virginia Mason’s “Mass Attack Team” was the top fundraising team this year at the Puget Sound Purple Stride event at Magnuson Park and raised $24,462 to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, helping to fund research to advance treatments for this disease. Staff from the Cancer Institute, GI, and Surgery all volunteered to make this event successful. The rain didn’t stop anyone from running or walking the 5K. Join us next November and keep Virginia Mason a gold sponsor for this event. For more information contact the Pancreas cancer navigator at Pancreatic-Cancer@virginiamason.org. Kevin Collis, RN
