From left, Fellow Ellen Andrews, MD; program director John Langois, MD; and Fellow Aditi Sethi-Brown, MD. Andrews and Sethi-Brown graduated Wednesday as the first two Fellows from the CarePartners Hospice and Palliate Medicine program. This program is one of only 3 in the state of North Carolina and allowed the Fellows to work intensively in CarePartners' Solace Center, a 27-bed inpatient hospice unit. They are part of CarePartners inpatient Supportive and Palliative Care service providing consultations for goals of care discussions and symptom management in all parts of Mission Hospital, and providing additional services to patients in their homes and in the Palliative Care outpatient clinic. The Fellows collaborated with team members of all disciplines in Hospice Home Care.
