Palliative Medicine

Palliative care is all about providing specialized, multidisciplinary medical care to patients suffering from serious illnesses, with an aim to enhance their quality of life. A treatment mode that integrates the psychological and spiritual aspects of patient care, palliative therapies focus on providing maximum possible relief from the symptoms, pain and stress caused by the illness, with utmost consideration and compassion.

According to WHO (World Health Organisation), Palliative care is defined as an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problem associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual.

Palliative care are provided in conjunction with other therapies that are intended to prolong life like chemotherapy and radiation, right from the time of diagnosis. This ensures the patient maximum relief from the associated pain and discomfort caused by the illness as well as the high-intensity therapies.

The palliative care plan for each patient is created after a detailed assessment of his or her medical condition, symptoms and existing/ possible complications and psychosocial background, so that the patient remain active.

Apart from managing pain, the psychological/ spiritual aspects of the treatment affirm fact that life and death are natural processes. The families of the patient too are provided psychological support including counselling so that they cope up with the intense stress and bereavement, which is inevitable.

Paediatric Palliative Care

A child being diagnosed with a life-limiting illness is the most devastating thing that can happen to a family. Palliative treatment in children and young adults involve a comprehensive, compassionate approach to care, with strong focus on enhancing the quality of life. The course of the treatment is planned after taking into consideration the physical, emotional, social and spiritual aspects, as the needs of children are very different compared to that of adults. The family’s emotional needs are taken care of too, with continued counseling and support. This enables them to cope up with the grief and them live through what is probably the worst time of their lives.

The Palliative Care department at Aster Medcity has an highly-trained team of doctors who specialize in providing pain management and palliative treatment to patients with life-limiting diseases including cancers, end stage renal and liver diseases, cardiac and neurological issues. Multidisciplinary in approach, they provide guideline-based care to patients of all ages, with the support of trained nurses and therapists.

The department also offers palliative care for geriatric (elderly) patients.
