Pain Management in Palliative Care

  • Pallavi Ahluwalia Professor, Department of Anaesthesia, Teerthanker Mahaveer Medical College, TMU, Moradabad.


The main aim of Palliative care is to provide the best possible quality of life to the  person approaching the end of life and  also support  their families and caregivers. Palliative care is a holistic approach to provide care and support. Palliative care  is like an umbrella which takes  into account emotional, psychological and spiritual needs as well as physical needs.  The core concept of palliative care is pain control. Freedom From Pain helps patient to cope up and  enables them to make arrangements for the future of others who depend on them, as well as to live as fully as possible for as long as possible. Very beautifully expressed that “Where pain ends- the life begins’’.
