This chapter discusses the quality issues found in palliative and supportive care. It distinguishes the two main areas that are important for palliative care: ‘quality of life’ of patients and their carers and ‘quality of care’ delivered by services. Some of the issues of quality discussed in this chapter include the theoretical considerations on measuring quality and the aspects of quality that are considered ‘right’.

Keywords:   quality issues, quality of life, quality of care, theoretical considerations, measuring quality, aspects of quality
