Abstract

Patients often believe erroneously that they must "live with" severe symptoms that often limit their quality of life. Palliative management of all nonpainful symptoms begins with the assessment and reassessment of these troublesome symptoms. Although they are challenging, most often the burden of these symptoms can be decreased, thereby lessening the associated suffering. The ability to promote optimal comfort makes palliative care a rewarding, although challenging, focus of care.
