NINR recently updated its brochure Palliative Care: The Relief You Need When You Have a Serious Illness. The revised publication is available in English and Spanish.

The brochure, originally titled Palliative Care: The Relief You Need When You’re Experiencing the Symptoms of Serious Illness, has been revised to reflect the most recent research, terminology and practices.

The purpose of the brochure is to provide patients with serious illnesses and their families with clear, evidence-based information about what palliative care is, who it benefits and how it works. The brochure also addresses certain misconceptions about palliative care, such as that it is only for those nearing the end of life.
