Symptom control is vitally important in palliative care. This session aims to provide an overview of how to manage symptoms of debility and also common respiratory and skin symptoms encountered in the palliative care setting.

This session was reviewed by Khyati Bakhai and last updated in December 2021.

Learning objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • describe the principles of control of non-specific, respiratory, and skin symptoms in the palliative care situation
  • recognise the common respiratory and skin symptoms encountered
  • differentiate between debility and depression
  • manage these symptoms in patients who are terminally ill

The problems arising in palliative care are a complex mix of physical, psychological, social, cultural and spiritual factors involving both patients and carers.
