Dr Khan provides a broad range of expertise in the management of medical problems within the context of advance disease. He treats patients facing serious illness, working closely with their medical team, relatives and carers with an approach to palliative care which is far broader than simply end of life care, a somewhat traditional view of this field of medicine. Providing a more holistic approach, Dr Khan’s treatment of patients includes an assessment, and treatment of pain, symptom control, physical, psychosocial and spiritual assessment, as well as relief from distressing symptoms. He also evaluates and manages non-pharmacological measures such as lifestyle, nutrition, physical environment and interventions, as well as providing advice and support for carers.
