Patient Care Philosophy
I especially like working with older adults who have advanced chronic illnesses, including those with dementia. As a palliative care and geriatric fellow, I have the wonderful opportunity to meet the unique healthcare needs of this population exclusively.
My clinical interests include dementia, mood and behavioral disorders; pain management; and end-of-life care.
Julia Vander Vegt's research interests include hope and end-of-life care, dementia, mood and behavioral disorders.
