Taking away the pain in palliative care

Dr. Felicia Chang

Palliative Care

“We provide holistic care for our patients,” explains Dr Chang, the medical director of AsPacc. “First is the physical care, which is treating pain and symptoms control such as breathing difficulties, confusion, vomiting, nausea and so on. Without controlling the pain, it will be difficult to address the other needs of the patient. Next, we offer emotional care. Terminally ill patients go through a rollercoaster of emotions – denial, hopelessness, uncertainty, anger and so on.
