Philosophy of Care

I am honored to care for people and their families who are living with serious illness. Through personal experience with friends and family members, I appreciate the complex emotions and symptoms that a serious diagnosis brings. My goal is to treat people with the understanding and respect that I would want for my family members.

Clinical Interests

Annemarie Hargadon MD is board certified in internal medicine with subspecialty board certification in palliative medicine and hospice.

Research/Academic Interests

My work and research experience allows me to focus on three things:

1. Building an interdisciplinary practice in outpatient palliative medicine.

2. Teaching an integrative approach to palliative care based on its essential domains: expert symptom management, facilitation and support around aligning patient goals of care with treatments, communication skills and attention to each patients’s psycho-social and spirtual needs.

3. Shaping a research agenda that further develops and disseminates these comprehensive principles and practices in palliative care education.
