Palliative care is special medical care for people with serious illnesses. This type of care is focused on giving you relief from the symptoms, pain, and stress of a serious illness - whatever the diagnosis.
The goal is to improve quality of life for both you and your family. Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses, and other specialists who work with a patient's other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. Palliative care can be started at any age and at any stage in a serious illness and can be given at the same time as other treatments.
