Pain & Symptom Managment

Pain, as well as other symptoms of serious illness, is a personal experience that can include physical, emotional, or spiritual causes. Pain can come and go, be constant, and vary from mild to severe. When you have pain, it is difficult to rest, make decisions about your care, and enjoy your family.

Symptoms of advanced illness may include pain, difficulty breathing, weakness/fatigue, loss of appetite, and depression. When symptoms are not treated, you may feel tired, stressed, angry, and lonely.

With years of experience in the management of pain and other symptoms that may develop during the course of a serious illness, palliative care specialists can work with your medical team to provide an expert, coordinated plan to improve pain.

The palliative care team will tailor your symptom care plan to maximize the things that are important to you, balancing your activity and alertness with good symptom control.

With improved symptom control, patients are often able to enjoy the things in life that give them quality. The palliative care team will continue to assist the medical team with management until discharge.
