CARE V: Palliative care

The anthroposophic palliative care works with a spiritual-scientific understanding of the human being that places the concept of development at the foundation of patient care. In addition to addressing clinical symptoms, Anthroposophic Medicine incorporates therapeutic measures to support the patient’s life organization, as well as the needs of soul and spirit. The patient’s spiritual questions require special attention, which can lead to suggestions for meditative work or prayer.
The Medical Section's CARE V expert group is composed of palliative care physicians, nurses, psychotherapists, body therapists, art therapists, and chaplains.
