With rising health care expenditures becoming a main area of focus for providers and researchers working within the United States health care system, there has been a continued trend of encouraging patients to utilize palliative care. Palliative care can address a broad range of issues, integrating an individual’s specific needs into care. One of the key targets of palliative care is to transition a patient from curative treatment to end-of-life care that emphasizes the importance of a holistic approach to end-of-life care. Research shows that palliative care and its many components are beneficial to patient and family health and well-being.
