The Natalie Kutner Palliative Care Creative Arts Therapy Program promotes creative expression to help patients, families, and caregivers process the experience of serious illness. Through dedicated time at the bedside, the music and art therapists support individuals in using a variety of artistic media to enhance a sense of control, promote  
emotional and self-expression, encourage continued development of coping skills, or assist in the creation of memory keepsakes. Art and music therapists focus on quality of life, listening to patients - hearing what is important to them, while providing a supportive presence to family and caregivers as well.
