Palliative Medicine

Medicine pursues the goal of curing patients of their diseases. Regrettably, this goal is not always achievable. When the possibilities for curing a disease have been exhausted and life expectancy is limited, this is where palliative medicine begins. In palliative medicine, interdisciplinary cooperation is required or presupposed. The goal of palliative medicine is above all the best possible comprehensive symptom control, but also accompaniment and support of patients and their social environment in this phase of life, in order to make the remaining time of life as “optimal” as possible.
