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.
