Palliative Care

Enhances quality of life for patients with serious illnesses.

Palliative Care

Palliative Care provides holistic support and symptom management for patients facing serious or life-limiting illnesses, focusing on pain relief, comfort care, emotional support, and improving quality of life for both patients and their families. 

It can be provided alongside curative treatments and is not limited by prognosis. Palliative care is a specialized approach to care that aims to alleviate suffering and improve the overall well-being of individuals with advanced or terminal illnesses, regardless of age, diagnosis, or prognosis. 

The focus is on addressing physical symptoms, such as pain, nausea, fatigue, dyspnea, and constipation, through a combination of pharmacological and non-pharmacological interventions tailored to individual needs and preferences. 

Emotional and psychological support is provided to help patients cope with distressing symptoms, existential concerns, and psychosocial stressors, fostering a sense of comfort, dignity, and peace in the face of illness. 

Communication and advance care planning facilitate open discussions about treatment goals, preferences for end-of-life care, and decisions regarding resuscitation, ventilation, and other medical interventions, ensuring alignment with patient values and wishes. 

Palliative care extends to the patient's family members and caregivers, offering counseling, bereavement support, and practical assistance to navigate the challenges of caregiving, grief, and loss. Interdisciplinary teams comprising physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and other specialists collaborate to provide comprehensive care, address complex needs, and promote holistic well-being for patients and families. 

Palliative care can be delivered in various settings, including hospitals, hospices, long-term care facilities, and home-based programs, with a focus on enhancing quality of life, relieving suffering, and optimizing comfort throughout the illness trajectory. 

It complements curative treatments and is integrated into ongoing care to provide seamless transitions and continuity of support for patients and families facing serious illness.
