Palliative care is provided by a medical team. Physicians, Nurses, Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists who work together with the primary care physician. This treatment also referred specialists and hospice staff to provide additional support.

Although it is an important part of end-of-life care, it is not limited to that stage. Palliative care can be provided across multiple settings including in hospitals, at home, as part of community palliative care programs, and in skilled nursing facilities. Interdisciplinary palliative care teams work with people and their families to clarify goals of care and provide symptom management, psycho-social, and spiritual support.
