2. “The relief of suffering is one of the primary aims of medicine. The nature of suffering and what physicians can do to prevent or relieve it is poorly understood. Suffering is a global concept that must be distinguished from pain or other physical symptoms with which it may be associated. Although physicians, patients, and medical literature tend to link pain with suffering, there are distinct phenomena”.
