What is Palliative Care?
Palliative care is a specialized type of medical care that focuses on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, and suffering associated with serious illness, rather than treating the illness itself. Palliative care is aimed at improving the quality of life for patients who are facing a serious illness, such as cancer, heart disease, or advanced stages of other chronic conditions, by addressing physical, emotional, psychosocial, and spiritual needs.
Palliative care is provided by a team of healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, social workers, and other specialists, who work together to provide holistic care tailored to the individual needs and preferences of the patient and their family. Palliative care can be provided at any stage of illness, alongside curative treatments, and is not limited to end-of-life care. It can be an important component of comprehensive care for patients with serious illnesses to manage symptoms, support emotional well-being, and improve overall quality of life.
