Palliative care is medical treatment to reduce the severity of symptoms and improve overall quality of life. During cancer treatment, palliative care can help ease pain, fatigue, nausea, and other symptoms. Palliative care is not the same as hospice care. While hospice care eases suffering during the end of life when other treatments are stopped, palliative care can be given along with regular treatment and with any prognosis.
