Family Support Resources
Complex Illness Management is specialized medical care for people living with serious illnesses. It is focused on providing patients with relief from the symptoms and stresses of a serious illness - whatever the diagnosis - and is provided together with all other medical treatments. The goal is to improve quality of life for both the patient and their family.

- Offer dignity and quality of life for patients and their families.
- Provide compassionate holistic interdisciplinary care for those with serious illnesses.
- Apply excellent scientific evidence in the relief of pain and other symptoms.
- Advocate and support informed decisions to ensure that patient and family wishes and goals are identified and respected.
