Psychosocial Issues in Palliative Care

Edzard Ernst

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the integration of complementary therapies in palliative care. It explains that there is encouraging evidence suggesting that several therapies that might be considered as complementary might decrease cancer risks such as the regular intake of allium vegetables and consumption of tomato products. It reviews evidence for and against integrating complementary therapies in cancer palliation and discusses two symptoms that are of particular importance to palliative and supportive care.

Keywords:   complementary therapies, palliative care, cancer, allium vegetables, tomato products, supportive care
