Palliative Care: Enabling People to Live Fully

Frederick S. Upton Education Center, St. Joseph, MI
B. Allyn Behling, DO

Advanced illness patients are offered more treatment options and thus have the benefits of an extended lifespan. The goal of good patient-centered care is to achieve the best possible quality of life through relief of suffering, control of symptoms and restoration of functional capacity, while remaining sensitive to the patient and family's values.
