Palliative Care and Terminal Care

Terminal care was defined as “the management of patients during the last few days or weeks or even months of life.” This vague definition makes visible the difficulties we have in estimating the duration of life for patients with end-of-life cancer. These difficulties can become an ethical dilemma when a physician, on referring a patient to a hospice programme, is obliged to predict accurately the patient’s prognosis.
