Questions to think about: 
  • Why do you think it is important to continue taking care of people who are terminally ill, beyond meeting their basic needs?
  • What is palliative care?
Summary: 

Palliative patients seek care in a comprehensive manner in the terminal phase of their lives. They cater to patients whose diseases generally have no cure. The goal is to give these patients the best quality of life possible ( physical, psychological , social , spiritual ... ) .
