The Palliative Care Service at KIMS focuses on symptom management and quality of life issues for adult patients with serious chronic progressive or terminal illnesses like cancer.
The program is centered on the patient and their family, and deals with physical issues such as pain, fatigue, and nausea; and also with psychosocial issues like depression and disruption of family life. Each patient consultation includes a comprehensive review of medical records, a detailed medical history, a physical examination, and a discussion of the symptoms, goals, values, social interests, and spiritual needs of the patient and his/her family. Ongoing evaluation and follow-up care is then provided as needed.
The Palliative Care Service takes an interdisciplinary approach to care through a team of experts that includes a physician, advanced practice nurse and counsellor. Team members combine their expertise to provide coping strategies and support as well as help managing symptoms such as pain, nausea, fatigue and anxiety. They work closely with the patient's physicians and other health-care providers to coordinate and clarify goals of care and assist with end-of-life issues, when needed.
