Frequently Asked Questions: Palliative
What is palliative care? Is palliative care just about pain management? Find the answers to your questions here.
Palliative care is specialized medical care that focuses on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness, regardless of the diagnosis or stage of the disease.
While both prioritize comfort, Palliative care can be pursued at any time during an illness, in conjunction with curative treatments, whereas hospice care is typically reserved for individuals nearing the end of life and no longer pursuing curative treatments.
Any patient suffering from a serious illness, regardless of age or stage of disease, may benefit from Palliative care. This includes patients with cancer, heart disease, lung diseases, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s, and many other conditions.
While pain management is a significant component, Palliative care also addresses other symptoms like nausea, fatigue, anxiety, and shortness of breath. It also provides emotional, spiritual, and psychosocial support.
Palliative care can be given alongside curative treatments. Its focus is on managing symptoms and improving quality of life, and it can complement other therapies or treatments.
If someone is experiencing significant symptoms, pain, or stress due to a serious illness, a discussion with a healthcare provider about Palliative care may be beneficial.
