Palliative Care Minor

Palliative care provides those with a serious or chronic illness – from the time of diagnosis throughout the course of treatment – care that optimizes quality of life by anticipating, preventing, and managing suffering. It is delivered by an interdisciplinary team of physicians, nurses, social workers, chaplains, and other practitioners (artists, musicians, complementary care providers, therapists) to address the physical, intellectual, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of patients and their families. Palliative Care can be provided from the time of diagnosis along with curative treatments.
