This chapter discusses the proper management of odours and wounds in patients with advanced breast cancer. It shows that caring for a patient with any wound takes time, and that periodic assessment of the wound is required. It is possible that the characteristics of the wound can change, as well as the desires and conditions of the patient. The chapter discusses the challenges the interdisciplinary palliative care team should address, such as pain management and emotional and social issues. It also examines the treatment plans and management goals, which would require review and alteration over time.

Keywords:   management of odours, periodic assessment, wound characteristics, palliative care team, treatment plans, management goals, challenges
