Any condition where death is the expected eventual outcome.
These are varied and guided by the clinical circumstances.
Your palliative care physician needs to know about your condition but also about you and your family’s expectations, hopes and understanding. History taking will focus initially on your condition and your current symptoms. They will also ask about past medical history, medications, allergies, social and family history. Next it is important to establish what are your main concerns so these can be addressed individually and completely. Palliative care physicians are specially trianed to communicate, explain and guide patients and families through what is a very difficult time.
The approach is very multidisciplinary with nurses, psychologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists and doctors all being invovled.
HealthEngine is dedicated to helping patients and health practitioners connect. We believe that when we do this well, everyone benefits.
