Palliative care is to provide comprehensive physical, psychological, social and spiritual care to improve the quality of life of patients, so that patients can finish the last stage of their life with quality, dignity, peace and harmony, so that patients and their families can get comfort in this process. Palliative care does not mean an end, nor does it mean giving up; its goal is not to hasten or delay death, but to provide medical support to ease the pain and discomfort of the end of life, to respect the laws of nature, and to make life more dignified
Palliative care includes the four main aspects:
1.With care as the center, one of the goals is to keep patients physically comfortable, control pain, and provide life care and psychological support.
2.Safeguard human dignity. Patients' personal dignity should not reduce because of weakening life vitality, and individual rights should not be deprived because of physical weakness.
3.Improve the quality of life for patients, remind people with humanized service to respect and affirm patients' life.
4.The palliative care team should create a warm and harmonious environment for patients to leave to leave the world cushily and peacefully.
