    What Is Palliative Care Treatment?

    Cancer and its treatment are known to have physical, emotional, financial and social impacts on the patient. Treatment of these side effects is known as palliative or supportive care.

    There are cancer treatments to slow, stop or cure cancer and palliative care is an essential addition to the treatment plan. Sometimes, cancer survivors who have new symptoms after the completion of treatment are suggested palliative care.

    According to research, it is seen that palliative care enables the patient to feel satisfied with the treatment and live a better life. Therefore, you can start palliative care immediately after being diagnosed with cancer and continue throughout the treatment duration.

    Why Is It Done?

    You can receive palliative care any time, from the diagnosis to the end of the treatment. Do not wait for the disease to advance or wait till you are in the final months of your life to receive palliative care. On the contrary, the sooner, the better. Once you begin the treatment of the illness, you can suffer from anxiety, fatigue and depression. The team that delivers palliative care understands the situation and helps you and your family cope with the circumstances.

    You can ask your doctor for palliative care referrals. Mostly, palliative care is given in a hospital; however, if required, it can be delivered at your home or long-term care centre.
