Whats palliative care?

Relieve symptoms. Palliative care refers to medical care typically used for patients with terminal illness with a focus on relieving symptoms, pain and stress rather than a focus on curing the underlying medical problem.
Also... Palliative care can be broadly defined as care that optimizes quality of life regardless of the stage of illness, and can be given simultaneously with disease-modifying care. Not restricted to only patients with terminal illness!
