Department of Internal Medicine is organizing an information session on palliative care.
Palliative care is a multidisciplinary approach to specialized medical and nursing care for people with life-limiting illnesses. It focuses on providing relief from the symptoms, pain, physical stress, and mental stress of a terminal diagnosis. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the person and their family. Evidence as of 2016 supports palliative care’s efficacy in the improvement of a patient’s quality of life.
