Palliative Care

Palliative care is active total care for patients with serious illness.

Care is provided for patients and families by an interdisciplinary team working collaboratively with the patient's attending physician, who focuses on pain and symptom control, management of psychosocial and spiritual issues and grief/bereavement support.

Palliative care is provided with other appropriate medical care and is not reserved only for patients at end of life. The goal of palliative care is to help the patient achieve the best possible quality of life.
