Palliative care, often called supportive care, is specialized medical care for seriously ill patients and their families.
The goal of palliative and supportive care is to address and relieve medical symptoms, stress and suffering that may accompany serious illnesses, such as cancer or heart failure. It is appropriate for patients at any age and at any stage of a serious illness. It can be provided together with curative treatment.
