Quoted From: https://www.compassoncology.com/palliative-care

"Our palliative care team, working with your oncologist and other healthcare providers, focuses on preventing, managing and relieving the symptoms of cancer and the side effects of treatment. In addition to treating physical issues, such as pain, nausea and fatigue, palliative care also focuses on relieving stress and supporting your emotional, spiritual, and practical needs, as well as the needs of your loved ones and caregivers. You can receive palliative care at any age and at any stage of your cancer diagnosis. Talking about palliative care anytime during a cancer diagnosis can help you and your loved ones better understand what to expect from the illness and treatment, plan for the future, clarify your goals and expectations and maintain your quality of life.Palliative care services can include visits with specially-trained team members such as doctors, advance practice providers (like nurse practitioners and physician assistants), nurses, social workers, and dieticians, helping with a range of issues to better support you and your loved ones. This extra layer of support has been shown to reduce symptom burden, enhance emotional well-being of patients, loved ones, and caregivers, increase function and quality of life and facilitate more robust communication and care coordination amongst the healthcare team."
