Pain and Palliative Care

Palliative care: Palliative care is available to patients at any stage of illness, and is focused on helping patients find relief from pain, symptoms, and stress that can come with a serious illness. In early stages of cancer treatment, palliative care can help make medical treatments more tolerable. At later stages, it can reduce suffering, help patients carry on in daily life, assist with planning future medical care, and provide support for living with a life-threatening illness. Our palliative care team has specialized training in pain management, symptom control, supportive counseling, and advanced care planning and works with your entire care team to support you and your family.
