The World Health Organization defined palliative care as “an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and impeccable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems, physical, psychosocial, and spiritual. The patient centric primary care model (PCCM) promises to provide a solution to control these health-care challenges. The model is largely based on the chronic care model (CCM) and the model developed by the Organized Medicine Academic Guild (OMAG) for delivering health care in India.
