Palliative Care

Year: 2016
Palliative care is providing quality of life for those whose illness is progressive, and terminal. Palliative care places emphasis on valuing autonomy and dignity for patients, and it addresses the individual physical, psychological, social and spiritual needs of the patient. This Medical Protocol draws on research of palliative care for people with progressive long-term neurological conditions (PLTNCs) and palliative care more broadly.
