Palliative Care

People with serious illnesses can receive specialized medical care called palliative care. Relief from the illness's symptoms and stress is the primary goal of this kind of care. The objective is to enhance the patient's and the family's quality of life.

A specifically trained group of physicians, nurses, and other professionals who collaborate with a patient's medical clinicians to offer an additional layer of support called palliative care. Palliative care depends on the patient's needs rather than their prognosis. At any age or stage of a severe illness, it is suitable and can be delivered in addition to curative care.

How does physical therapy fit into palliative care?

Palliative care physiotherapy strives to offer patients with severe, advancing, and incurable illnesses a comprehensive assessment and treatment. Patients who receive physiotherapy can improve or maintain their physical independence and functioning, as well as find relief from painful symptoms. A person's overall quality of life is to be improved, and they are supported in remaining at their preferred site of care.

The palliative care physiotherapy team collaborates closely with the palliative care medical team and other clinical nursing professionals as a member of the professional palliative care service.

Physiotherapists are well-positioned to encourage patients to develop a positive approach to living with illness or the effects of treatment and, in doing so, impact positively on well-being and quality of life.
