Palliative Care Program

What is Palliative Care?

Palliative care is an interdisciplinary specialty that helps patients and their families live as well and as fully as possible when faced with a serious illness. Unlike hospice, which focuses on care at the end-of-life, palliative care is appropriate during any phase of a serious or advanced illness, even while patients are receiving curative and life-prolonging treatment.

The goal of palliative care is to enhance the lives of patients with any advanced or serious illness, regardless of prognosis.
