Abstract

In a modern specialist field like palliative care, there is a tendency to take the shorter view of history. From this perspective, most true improvement is recent in origin yet radical in impact: today’s norms have overturned yesterday’s misconceptions and tomorrow always holds the promise of further scientific advancement. Medicine, in particular, can be a discipline uncomfortable with its past and irrepressibly forward-looking in orientation.
