What is Palliative Care?
Palliative Care is an important public health issue. As a clinical practice it addresses the suffering, dignity, care needs, and quality of life of people with serious life-limiting illness. It provides care and support to their families and friends during the time of illness to manage complex symptoms and decision-making and after death occurs, provides bereavement support. Education and training are essential to prepare the palliative care practitioners of the future.
