What is Palliative Care ?


Palliative Care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness/serious health related suffering, through prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychological and spiritual.
