Established in 2019, the Palliative Care Department at Augusta Victoria Hospital is proud to be the only department in Palestine offering comprehensive and high-quality palliative care services. Our goal is to improve the quality of life for both patients and their loved ones by addressing physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs at end of life stage. We understand that pain is a common and often severe symptom for patients, particularly those with terminal illnesses such as cancer.
Our dedicated multidisciplinary team, led by an oncologist and palliative care expert, provide comprehensive pain management treatments, symptom management, medications, in addition to psychological support, nutrition guidance, and physical therapy.
We are committed to supporting our patients and their families through every stage of their journey. Our team includes a pharmacist, palliative care coordinator nurse, psychological support specialist, dietitian, and physical therapist, all working together to define a plan tailor-made for each patient.
