Palliative Wound Care
Palliative wound care is an alternative approach to alleviate suffering and improve the quality of life of the patient if the wound no longer responds to curative treatment, or if the patient can no longer tolerate it. While traditional wound treatment focuses primarily on healing a wound, palliative care focuses on symptom management, addressing the problems of end-of-life care with infection, discomfort, wound odor, exudate and reduced quality of life. Patients with palliative wound usually have long-term, potentially life-limiting diseases of varying etiology that can impair the integrity of the skin.
