Palliative care is a specialized care for people with serious illness. The main focus of Palliative Care is to provide patients with relief from distress and symptoms of serious illness. Palliative care helps the patient to gain strength in day to day activities, to understand the treatment regimen and provides practical support to family caregivers.
Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage. The experience of pain can induce depression, exacerbate anxiety, interfere with social performance, impair the quality of relationship and have negative impact on physical capability. Important factors can influence the pain experience and the total pain may be physical, psychological, social and spiritual. Effective management of pain is dealt by a multidisciplinary approach that addresses the patient concerns and fears, as well as treating the physical aspects of pain.
The unique and focussed combination of skills permits our pain management team to treat the patient through a comprehensive non-surgical treatment plan that reduces or helps manage pain and improve the Quality of Life.
The core team of palliative care helps the patient to cope with end of life issues or terminal illness and provide psychological, psychosocial and spiritual support thus maintaining the Quality of Life of not only the patient but also their family members. The team provides supportive care to the patient and family members during the end phases of terminal illness not only by managing the patient symptoms, but also helping the patient and family members to understand the options and goals of palliative care by providing an extra care layer of support and comfort. The Department is accredited with NABH.
