Palliative approach

“A palliative approach recognizes
that, although not all people with life-limiting illness require specialized
palliative services, they do require care that is aimed at improving quality
of life by preventing and relieving suffering through early identification,
assessment, and treatment of physical, psychosocial, and spiritual concerns”
