Palliative care

Palliative care is a method of treating patients and their families who are dealing with the effects of a life-threatening illness. It prevents and alleviates suffering by detecting, assessing, and treating pain and other disorders, whether they are physical, psychosocial, or spiritual.

Palliative care supports patients and their carers through a collaborative approach. This includes meeting basic needs and offering grief counselling. It provides a support structure to assist patients in living as fully as possible until their death.

A wide spectrum of disorders necessitates palliative care. The majority of persons who require palliative care have chronic illnesses such as cardiovascular disease (38.5%), cancer (34%), chronic respiratory disease (10.3%), AIDS (5.7%), and diabetes (4.6 %). Kidney failure, chronic liver disease, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, rheumatoid arthritis, neurological disease, dementia, congenital defects, and drug-resistant tuberculosis are all disorders that may necessitate palliative care. Pain and difficulty in breathing are two of the most frequent and serious symptoms experienced by patients in need of palliative care.
