This chapter considers the potential for palliative care in heart disease. It addresses the following questions: Which patients are likely to benefit from palliative care? How many patients are likely to be affected? What problems do they have? It then presents a summary of research on the effectiveness of interventions/services for heart failure and intractable angina. This is followed by discussions of priorities for further research and implications for clinical management.

Keywords:   palliative care, heart failure, intractable angina, clinical management
