Palliative Care: Benefitting Patients, Family Members and the Medical Team Members
Palliative care focuses on comfort and quality of the life that is provided in conjunction with curative therapies. Physical, spiritual, psychosocial distressors play a major role in a patient's illness and become a source of stress for the patient's family members. A palliative care team approach can provide assistance to the patients, their families, and in a unique manner support the medical teams caring for the patients.
