Palliative care seeks to alleviate pain and suffering and improve the quality of life of the patient and his or her family. Palliative care not only alleviates physical symptoms but also helps with mental, social and spiritual difficulties. Palliative care supports family members during illness and in mourning after the patient's death. Palliative care celebrates life: it does not accelerate or delay death, considering it as part of a normal life process.</p> 2020-01-25T00:00:00+00:00 Copyright (c) 2020 Siniša
