How does palliative care improve quality of life?


Palliative care aims to improve patients’ quality of life by providing help with previously difficult symptoms such as pain, sickness, and constipation.

It also supports the families of these patients. The primary goal in palliative medicine and care is to improve the quality of life by providing:

  • Pain management
  • Emotional support
  • Reduction of overall symptoms
  • Complimentary therapies
  • Spiritual support
  • Rehabilitation
  • End of life and bereavement support

Palliative medicine is often offered by a multidisciplinary team including physicians, specialist nurses, physiotherapists, and counsellors.
