Abstract

AB Palliative (terminal) care is now recognized worldwide as an important, multidisciplinary aspect of the continuing care of patients with incurable cancer. Symptom control and quality-of-life are of the essence. Various treatment methods are available, and radiotherapy and chemotherapy (used appropriately) are important modalities. Palliative care has to be set against a background of planning, development, and cost-benefit analyses.
