Abstract

Palliative care is the active holistic care of patients with advanced progressive illness and includes areas other than oncology. Apart from, managing pain and other symptoms, palliative care is aimed at delivering psychological, social and spiritual support to patients and their family to achieve the best quality of life. Development of cancer palliative care and hospices has gained momentum in the UK since the opening of the World's first hospice in London in 1967 by Cicely Saunders and colleagues. Today, palliative care and end-of life care are growing areas of research worldwide.
