The purpose of Palliative Care is to optimize the quality of life for patients with an advanced or chronic disease process by ensuring the patient dignity while providing relief of suffering including pain and other symptoms management. Utilizing a multidisciplinary team approach to Palliative Care provides for not only physical needs but also the psychological, social, cultural, emotional and spiritual needs of the patient and his or her family.
