What is palliative care?
Palliative care is an interdisciplinary form of care aimed at improving the quality of life of patients and their families, who are facing problems associated with life-threatening illness. Palliative care is focused on providing relief from symptoms, pain and stress of a serious illness, offering a support system that keeps the recipient of palliative care as comfortable and active as possible until death.
