Cancer and its treatment often cause discomfort and challenges that greatly affect a person’s life and well-being. The worldwide need to provide palliative cancer care to relieve the suffering of patients and families living with cancer is greater than ever. Palliative care focuses on preventing, managing, and reliving the symptoms of cancer and any side effects caused by treatment, while providing comprehensive support to people living with cancer and their families. In Palliative Care, patients and their families learn about this specialized area of medicine that provides support and relief to any person, regardless of age or type and stage of cancer.

This booklet shows how palliative care is used to manage symptoms and side effects, help with practical concerns, address spiritual questions, and support caregivers, family, and friends. Readers will find:

  • Practical advice on how to access palliative care services
  • Questions to ask the health care team
  • A list of national organizations that can provide further assistance
  • A dictionary of important terms in palliative care

Talking about palliative care soon after a cancer diagnosis helps patients better understand their prognosis and goals of treatment, clarify their expectations, and maintain their quality of life. By using this booklet, patients and their families are better able to talk with their health care team about their concerns and work with them to manage the challenges that come with cancer.(1 QTY = 50 booklets)
