What Is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is specialised medical care for people with a complicated, serious illness. It primarily focuses on providing relief from the stress of the illness and to help them live as fully and as comfortably.

Palliative care may include these principles:

Affirming life and regarding dying as a normal process

Providing relief from pain and other distressing symptoms

Integrating psychological and physical aspects of spiritual life

Offering a support system to help patients live as comfortably as possible toward the end of life
