What is Palliative Care?
The Palliative Care team works with the patient, family, and primary physician when the patient is affected by chronic progressive illness by:
- Making suggestions for pain control and symptom management.
- Providing spiritual and emotional support.
- Assisting the patient’s family and others in exploring goals of care, understanding options, and determining choices based on patient wishes.
