Palliative Day Care in Practice

This chapter addresses the challenge of ‘generic’ palliative day care more fully. The study shows that the population is ageing and older people will be living with cancer and other life-threatening diseases in the future. Palliative day care services will come under increasing pressure to demonstrate the effectiveness and quality of the services they provide. Research is essential if palliative day care services are to meet the needs of the greatest numbers of people in the most effective ways. Diversification and integration with other health and social services is crucial if palliative day care services are to be extended to broader groups of patients in the future.

Keywords:   older people, palliative care, cancer, social services, health services, life-threatening diseases
