What to Know About Palliative Care for MBC - Metastatic Breast Cancer Trial Talk

From the Experts

The goal of palliative care is to ease symptoms of the cancer and allow the patient to have the best quality of life possible. Palliative care includes a broad range of supportive care that can help patients beginning at the time of diagnosis. Some patients receive palliative care for years. Palliative care can include surgery, radiation, medication, pain management, mental health support, and others. Hospice care, which is sometimes confused with palliative care, is provided to patients only during the last months of their lives.

Clinical trials are being done to better understand palliative care and how to deliver it. Trials for palliative care include those studying management of side effects, complementary and integrative medicine, and support/education.
