Pain management is an important part of palliative care. The focus is on improving quality of life and helping people to function as normally as possible.
Palliative care provides support for people with a wide range of serious illnesses, often for months or even years. It may be needed alongside treatment or to relieve pain and other symptoms when treatment is no longer possible. It is important to be able to talk about the pain and its effects so that the right treatment can be found. Everyone’s needs are different, but effective pain management during palliative care will focus on finding the least invasive option that works for you.
A holistic approach to pain in palliative care enables all of the social, emotional and physical effects to be addressed with an individual approach. A combination of medication, complementary therapies and other pain management interventions can help to make living with serious or chronic illness as comfortable as possible.
