Care for patients with cancer or other conditions
This chapter examines the extent to which the palliative care approach, which is aimed at promoting psychosocial and physical well being, is carried out in practice. It examines the extent to which the principles of palliative care are significant in theory and applicable in practice, particularly in those patients dying with cancer or other diseases. The articles reviewed in this chapter consist mainly of non-experimental, expert-opinion papers that provide detailed description of palliative care but with no detailed data. Most are expert opinion from the UK and North America.
