About Palliative Care

Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of people facing the problems associated with life-limiting illness and supports their families.

The palliative care approach focuses on the prevention and relief of suffering by means of assessing and treating pain and other physical, psychosocial or spiritual problems.

The aim of palliative care is to enhance quality of life and, wherever possible to positively influence the course of illness. Palliative care also extends support to families to help them cope with their family member’s illness and their own experience of grief and loss.
