Palliative care is specialized medical care for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from the symptoms, pain and stress of a serious illness—whatever the diagnosis. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and their family.
Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work together to provide an extra support. Palliative care is appropriate for patients at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be provided along with curative treatment. Learn More
