AbstractAccording to the WHO definition, “Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families facing the problems associated with life-threatening illness, through the prevention and relief of suffering by means of early identification and treatment of other problems, physical, psychosocial and spiritual” . In addition, “Palliative care is required from early in the disease course, can be delivered alongside potentially curative treatment, and continues to include end-of-life or terminal care” .
