Palliative Care

The World Health Organization (WHO) defines palliative care as “an approach that improves the quality of life of individuals and their families facing the problems associated with life threatening illness through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification, assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychological and spiritual.

Palliative care medicine is often referred as “holistic” approach to care, where carers and family also play a vital role in patients life and they are also offered both emotional and spiritual support.

At Ramathibodi Hospital, our palliative care services offer inpatient care, home care and palliative out-patient services.
