Health Economics

  • (written as Palliative Care)
    Palliative care is mainly directed at providing relief to terminally ill people through symptom and pain management. The goal is not to cure but to provide comfort, emotional ease and to maintain the highest possible quality of life for as long as life remains. It seems not to have been much examined by health economists.
