Palliative Care is a concept of care which employs medical and nursing care as well as specific ancillary services, when indicated, whose primary objective is the comfort and overall well-being of the incurable/terminal individual. No treatment is employed which would overburden the individual, yet full support is offered for basic physical needs as well as spiritual, psychological, and emotional needs. Individuals, while experiencing similar diagnoses, may have different needs or symptoms associated with their disease and secondary diagnoses; hence personalized medical or nursing plans of care based on individual needs and symptoms are developed.
