Palliative Care

Palliative care is universally recognized as specialized, comprehensive cancer care that focuses on providing relief from the symptoms, stress of a serious illness throughout the illness trajectory; not just at the end-of-life. These programs are helpful at any stage of disease to provide assistance in treating complex symptoms, extra emotional and psycho-social support, and the opportunity to discuss and establish the goals of care.

Palliative care is appropriate for patients of any age and at any stage of illness, and research has shown that healthcare institutions delivering timely, patient-centered palliative care can both improve the patient experience and reduce healthcare costs.
