Palliative cancer care - Definition


Definition


In cases of cancer, palliative care is administered in the terminal disease stage, when there are no more treatment options that can cure the disease and death is imminent. This type of care does not seek to hasten death, but rather to provide support for the patient and their family through the difficult experience, by relieving pain and alleviating psychological suffering. Palliative care can be offered within a hospital ward, but sometimes the patient can return home and adapted treatment is provided to ensure the terminal patient the utmost dignity at the end of his life.
