At St. Anthony North Health
Campus, we believe in providing care for your body, mind and spirit, throughout any stage of illness. For families facing serious
illness, palliative medicine can provide pain relief, practical assistance and
peace of mind.
Palliative medicine is a type of
specialized medical care for people with serious and life-limiting illness,
focused on providing patients with relief from the associated symptoms, pain,
and stress – whatever the diagnosis. The goal is to improve quality of
life for both the patient and the family, working with the patient’s
established care team to provide an extra layer of support.
Palliative care is different than
hospice. It is appropriate at any age and at any stage in a serious
illness and can be provided alongside curative treatment. Palliative
medicine takes a multifaceted approach to pain to address the physical,
psychologic, social, and spiritual aspects of suffering. The palliative
care team at St. Anthony North Health Campus can help with patient and family
communication, goals and transitions of care, and advanced care planning.
The palliative care team at St.
Anthony North Health Campus is composed of Dr. Natalie Rodden as well as Laurie DeLalio, advanced practice nurse, Tyyne Andrews, licensed clinical social worker and Lorraine Leist, staff chaplain. Dr. Rodden and the rest of the team are
committed to serving the medical community and are involved with resident
education, bioethics, community outreach, CAREGIVER SUPPORT, and with the
creation of an outpatient palliative medicine clinical presence.
St. Anthony North Health Campus provides palliative
care for patients of all ages and at any stage of illness from cancer, stroke,
cardiac and respiratory disease, kidney failure, Alzheimer's, AIDS, amyotrophic
lateral sclerosis (ALS) and more.
Dr. Natalie Rodden is originally from Indiana and attended the
University of Notre Dame. She then went to medical school at Tulane
University, and completed internal medicine residency at the University of
Utah. She spent the last year at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona pursuing a
hospice and palliative medicine fellowship. Her research on “improving
spiritual competency at the Mayo Clinic” focused on creating a better culture
of awareness and comfort of health providers in addressing spiritual issues,
notably at the end of life. Dr. Rodden is new to the Denver area,
and looking forward to exploring the beautiful landscape.
