Have you ever thought about palliative care and wondered what it is? It can be thought of as a combination of the best communication and alignment. It defines patient-centered values, hope, goals and intolerable potential. It lets the clinician assess your medical state and expected outcomes. It also allows for assessing and improving symptoms, whenever and however those can be addressed. For some it first becomes a reality as end of life nears. For others, it is a state of mind that adds an extra layer of support during a lifetime of facing a medical disease. It gives us the chance to live life to its fullest during the time that each of us has.
