Our multidisciplinary health care team provides Palliative Care (care for the terminally ill and their families) for people with serious illnesses. It focuses on providing patients with relief from symptoms such as pain, physical and mental stress. The goal is to improve the quality of life for both the patient and the family. Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses, and other health professionals who work together with the primary care doctor and referred specialists. Palliative care can be provided along with curative treatment. Interdisciplinary palliative care teams work with patients and their families to clarify goals of care and provide symptom management, psycho-social and spiritual support.
