Life Sustaining Management and Alternatives Program (LSMA)

 The Life Sustaining Management and Alternatives Program (LSMA) is an Emergency Department Palliative Medicine Program which is provided 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

 The nation’s first and only Emergency Department-based Palliative Medicine Program, LSMA will take on the task of translating palliative care into the emergency setting

  • Often, patients arrive in the Emergency Department with known or newly diagnosed terminal illness, with physical and emotionally distressing symptoms. These patients present emergency physicians with palliative care opportunities—chances to relieve pain and suffering, and to work collaboratively with the patient and family to establish treatment goals that support and honor their wishes
  • The program will also concentrate on helping individuals understand their disease and how to manage their lives
  • Since the beginning of the program, we have helped meet the goals and wishes of more than 400 patients.
  • More information will be available throughout 2012
