“Palliative care is treatment that enhances, comforts, and improves the quality of the patient’s life.  The test of palliative treatment lies in the agreement by the patient, the physician, the primary caregiver, and the hospice team that the expected outcome is relief from distressing symptoms, easing of pain, and enhancement of quality of life.”
