Geriatric Palliative Care Innovations

Palliative care is intensive treatment for patients with serious illnesses. This focuses on relieving patients from the pain and discomfort of a severe illness. The aim is always to improve the quality of life for the patient as well as the family. Palliative care is supported by the team of physicians, nurses and other professionals who collaborate alongside other physicians operating with a patient to provide an additional support system.   It is effective in a serious illness at any age and at any stage, and can be supported with medication. Palliative medicine physicians care for people with life-limiting conditions, making their lives more secure given their worsening health. Symptom management is a significant part of their work, but it also tackles social and psychological problems and includes themselves in the family needs. Palliative care consultants operate inside multiprofessional teams and programs.
