Palliative Care is treatment aimed at improving the quality of life of people suffering from a life-threatening or severe condition, such as cancer. It looks at the complete person, not just the sickness. Because it is critical to treat any disease's origins and side effects as soon as possible, this includes any psychological, spiritual, or social issues. A qualified healthcare professional may offer palliative care at a hospital, outpatient clinic, long-term care institution, or at home. Anyone, regardless of age or stage, may get palliative care.

Many of the same medicines used to treat cancer may also be used to help a patient feel better. Radiation treatment or chemotherapy may be used to inhibit the development of tumors that cause discomfort. A tumor that pushes on nerves or causes discomfort may also be removed surgically.

Palliative care experts often collaborate with multidisciplinary teams that include nurses, physicians, pharmacists, and certified dieticians. They might also be chaplains or psychologists. The palliative care team works with the oncology team to manage a person's care and promote the maximum quality of life possible.

Palliative care experts may also assist caregivers, promote communication among health care providers, and enable conversations centered on patient care objectives.
