Stephanie Harman, MD, who’s clinical focus is in internal medicine and palliative care, is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Hospice and Palliative Medicine and is a clinical instructor of General Internal Medicine at Stanford University. Her expertise in symptom management is a great benefit to GRACE. Dr. Harman is currently the Director of Inpatient Palliative Care services at Stanford Hospital and Clinic.

Dr. Harman recently was named Stanford Hospital and Clinic’s winner of the Isaac Stein Award for Compassionate Care. This award for compassionate care recognizes dedication that began with her personal initiative when she was a third-year resident at Stanford and recognized a growing need for an important aspect of patient care known as “palliative care.” Unlike hospice care, which is designed for patients in the final stages of life, palliative care can be initiated as soon as a patient is diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. It offers pain relief, emotional and ethical support—aiding in the last journey that can be so difficult for patients and their families. GRACE is honored to have Dr. Harman as a faculty member at this time.

What is palliative care? I get this question at least once a day, not only from patients and families but also from other clinicians. While many GRACE members are familiar with palliative care, there still exists a lot of confusion out there about what palliative care exactly is. To be honest, back when I started medical school, I didn’t know what it was myself.
