Palliative care is a specialized medical approach focused on improving the quality of life for individuals facing serious illnesses or conditions. It provides comprehensive physical and emotional support to patients and their families throughout the illness.
One of the critical benefits of palliative care is effective pain and symptom management. Palliative care teams work closely with patients and their primary healthcare providers to develop personalized care plans that address the individual's specific needs, helping to alleviate pain and discomfort while minimizing side effects from treatments.
This holistic approach enhances the patient's comfort and well-being and allows them to maintain independence and engage in meaningful activities. Watch to learn more:
