Hospital-based Palliative Care Teams



Oxford University Press

The guidelines presented in this book should give some insight into the advantages that result from an atmosphere of mutual cooperation. The discussion notes that managing the distress and the symptoms of advancing cancer, and being prepared to work alongside the primary team, may greatly reassure patients. Families and the professional are most likely to appreciate the extra dimension of supportive care that can be offered. This allows one to become part of a truly integrated service; offering a balanced approach to patients and families who are struggling to come to terms with the devastating impact of advanced cancer.

Keywords:   advanced cancer, distress management, symptom management, supportive care, mutual cooperation
