Meet Dr. Ursula McVeigh

Posted on March 29, 2012

Dr. McVeigh is a palliative medicine physician at Fletcher Allen Health Care and medical director for Hospice of the Champlain Valley. She works in coordination with an interdisciplinary team in both the in-hospital and home setting. In the hospital, the palliative care team provides expertise in symptom management and in helping patients and families think through difficult treatment decisions to arrive at the best plan of care to fit their goals. In the home setting she works with the home hospice team and provides back-up support for difficult symptom management. These teams can be involved early in the course of illness depending on need for support of symptom management and quality of life and in the advanced stage of disease as individuals near the end of their lives.  On November 1, 2011, Dr. McVeigh, along with PACE VT home based palliative care physician Zail Berry, will  be guest speakers at a community education event,  Navigating Serious Illness:  The Role of Palliative Care.   Visit our events section to learn more.
