Institute of Palliative Care:

Key note:

Palliative Care is the treatment of symptoms and complications of cancer which is desperately needed by advanced cancer patients at a time when cancer becomes incurable and symptom management becomes most important to maintain the quality of life. Seventy percent patients present at a stage when cancer is incurable and majority of patients need palliative care sooner or later. A significant number of cancer patients who have been declared “Cured” also relapse and become incurable and need palliative care.

Palliative Care involves a holistic approach towards patient as a whole and his physical, psychological, spiritual and social needs. This necessitates special environment, customized building design to allow day light exposure, wide passages, attached bathrooms, modified bathroom accessories and special palliative care beds.

It demands specialists, nurses and paramedics, trained psychologists, religious services and support of society.
