About CAPC
Hear from Dr. Diane Meier and other national leaders . . .
Palliative care improves quality of life for adults, children and families facing serious illness like cancer by focusing on relief from pain, stress and other symptoms. It is appropriate at any age and any stage and can be provided alongside curative treatment. Palliative care is delivered by doctors, nurses, and other professionals who work together in a team-based and person-centered approach that identifies patient and family needs, explains treatment options, and gives people a voice in realizing their treatment goals. To save lives and prevent suffering, the American Cancer Society is collaboratively advancing a coordinated agenda of quality of life and survivorship activities promoting palliative care awareness and delivery of integrated palliative care services for all seriously ill adults and children in all care settings.
