Palliative medicine provides an interdisciplinary approach to meet the needs of the patient and their family at any stage of serious illness regardless of their prognosis or stage of illness and works in collaboration with the primary treating team with the intention of improving quality of life and minimizing suffering for patients and their families throughout the illness journey.
