Definition“Palliative Care is an approach to care directed at enhancing quality of life and is accepted by individuals and families facing a life-threatening illness, focusing on relief of suffering, while integrating psychosocial and spiritual aspects important to this individual. Palliative Care aims at positively influencing the course of illness and offering a support system for individuals and families.At MSJH we wish to make Palliative Care a partnership with the individual, family and inter- disciplinary team by focusing on the individual’s goals and dignity for their daily living.  We wish to affirm life, offer a support system to help individuals live as actively as possible until death; and regard dying as a normal process”.
