Geriatric Palliative Care

Geriatric palliative care is an interdisciplinary medical specialty that focuses on preventing and relieving suffering and improves quality of life for elderly patients and their families. Training in effective pain and symptom management makes this specialty an important counterpart to treating chronically ill older adults. Studies have shown that an older adults sensitivity to pain increased per decade of life and pain is experienced in as much as 80% of older adults suffering from common co-morbid conditions.
