Patients with advanced incurable cancer face complex physical, psychological, social, and spiritual consequences of disease and its treatment. Care for these patients should include an individualized assessment of the patient's needs, goals, and preferences throughout the course of illness. Consideration of disease-directed therapy, symptom management, and attention to quality of life are important aspects of quality cancer care. However, emerging evidence suggests that, too often, realistic… Expand
Early palliative care in cancer treatment: rationale, evidence and clinical implications
TLDR
The initiation of palliative care and discussion of the patients’ goals and preferences earlier in the course of disease can lead to improved symptom control, reduced distress throughout the disease-directed therapy, and care delivery that matches the patients' preferences. Expand
Early palliative care for patients with metastatic cancer
TLDR
Although this concept is already becoming increasingly implemented in tertiary (comprehensive cancer-) care settings, the potential of this approach should be explored for other clinical settings such as office-based oncology. Expand
Early implementation of palliative care can improve patient outcomes.

TLDR
Oncologists need to consider how best to screen patients and integrate early palliative care with routine oncologic care, within the context of their busy clinics, to ensure that patients, families, and caregivers receive timely support. Expand
Supportive and Palliative Oncology—A New Paradigm for Comprehensive Cancer Care
TLDR
An evidence-based update on several important palliative care topics, including management of pain, fatigue, anorexia–cachexia, depression, and anxiety, as well as patient–clinician communication and decision-making is provided. Expand
Palliative care reduces morbidity and mortality in cancer
TLDR
Through collaboration between oncologists and palliative care teams, there is hope of improving the quality of care for patients with both curable and life-limiting cancers. Expand

Purpose of review As the benefit of early palliative care for the quality of life of patients with advanced cancer is currently receiving widespread recognition, cancer specialists increasinglyExpand
Opportunities to maximize value with integrated palliative care
TLDR
Integrating palliative care into the care plan for individuals with advanced diseases does not necessarily imply that a patient must forego other treatment options, including those aimed at a cure, prolonging of life, or palliation. Expand
Early palliative care for adults with advanced cancer.
TLDR
Compared with usual/standard cancer care alone, early palliative care significantly improved health-related quality of life at a small effect size, and survival among adults with a diagnosis of advanced cancer. Expand

TLDR
Research findings in the field of PPO, concurrent with advances in the treatment of pediatric cancer, may help improve survival and quality of life for children with cancer. Expand
Caring for Patients at the End of Life
Abstract For patients at the end of life, the oncologist's care continues beyond the cessation of disease-directed therapy. When cure or even prolongation of life is no longer possible, oncologistsExpand

Palliative cancer care a decade later: accomplishments, the need, next steps -- from the American Society of Clinical Oncology.
TLDR
The need for palliative cancer care is greater than ever notwithstanding the strides made over the last decade, and further efforts are needed to realize the integration of palliatives care in the model and vision of comprehensive cancer care by 2020. Expand
Early palliative care for patients with metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer.
TLDR
Among patients with metastatic non-small-cell lung cancer, early palliative care led to significant improvements in both quality of life and mood and, as compared with patients receiving standard care, patients received less aggressive care at the end of life but longer survival. Expand

TLDR
A clear understanding of the factors that drive these costs, as well as potential modifications to the current cancer care system, are required to ensure that all Americans have access to high-quality, cost-effective care. Expand

Patient–oncologist communication in advanced cancer: predictors of patient perception of prognosis
TLDR
Communication of pessimistic information to patients with advanced cancer increases the likelihood that patients will report concordant prognostic estimates, and communication of optimistic information does not have any direct effect. Expand
End-of-life discussions, goal attainment, and distress at the end of life: predictors and outcomes of receipt of care consistent with preferences.
TLDR
Patients with cancer are more likely to receive Eol care that is consistent with their preferences when they have had the opportunity to discuss their wishes for EOL care with a physician. Expand
Oncologists' attitudes toward and practices in giving bad news: an exploratory study.
TLDR
In disclosing the cancer diagnosis and prognosis, physicians from Western countries were less likely to withhold unfavorable information from the patient at the family's request, avoid the discussion entirely, use euphemisms, and give treatments known not to be effective so as not to destroy hope than physicians from other countries.

TLDR
Interventions aimed at decreasing terminal hospitalizations or increasing hospice utilization may enhance patients' quality of life at the end of life (EOL) and minimize bereavement-related distress. Expand
