Comments Off on ESMO’s position paper expresses commitment to palliative care during cancer treatment:

“Supportive and palliative care interventions should be integrated, dynamic, personalised and based on best evidence. They should start at the time of diagnosis and continue through to end-of-life or survivorship.”

The position paper by Jordan K et al published as a special article in the Annals of Oncology dated Dec 8, 2017 highlights the evolving and growing gap between the needs of cancer patients and the actual provision of care. The concept of patient-centred cancer care is presented along with key requisites and areas for further work.
