Karen Lock, Nurse Practitioner, Supportive Care 
Palliative care is an approach to care for anyone living with a serious illness with unpleasant symptoms. It doesn't mean the end is near. It's all about having good care, good symptom control, good support for the individuals and their loved ones, and good working partnerships with the various health care team members so that the person with the illness can live better.
