Palliative Care in Cancer

Session 15 on Palliative Care in Cancer

Palliative care is a specialized approach to caring for individuals with serious illnesses, including cancer, with the goal of improving their quality of life. Palliative care is provided by a team of healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, social workers, and chaplains, who work together to address the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the patient and their family.

In cancer care, palliative care is often provided alongside curative treatment, with the aim of managing symptoms and improving quality of life throughout the treatment process. Palliative care can include pain management, symptom control, emotional and spiritual support, and assistance with end-of-life planning.

Palliative care can also be provided to patients who have advanced or terminal cancer, with the goal of ensuring that they are as comfortable and supported as possible during their final months of life. This may include pain management, symptom control, and counseling for the patient and their family.
