Facing death is one of life’s most poignant and painful seasons, yet there is no escape. Human mortality is unavoidable, but it is possible to die well – to manage pain, conclude relationships, and transition with courage.
Palliative care is a relatively new medical specialty that focuses on helping patients and their families manage symptoms and improve the quality of life for those with life-defining illnesses. Trillium Institute trains medical practitioners in the essentials of palliative care, and offers supportive services to patients that are facing life-defining illnesses. Palliative care focuses on making every day a good day.
