"#PalliativeCare is only for those who are imminently dying".
Palliative care can help people throughout their illness, from point of diagnosis. It can help people live well, live longer and focus treatment/care around their wishes. #PalliativeCareAdvent#Misconceptions
"#PalliativeCare can only occur in the absence of life-prolonging interventions"
It can be given during life-prolonging treatment or in the absence of it. It's about quality of life, symptom control, the person's wishes and preparing for the future. #PalliativeCareAdvent
