Abstract

Over the past 20 years, increasing attention has been paid to quality-of-life issues in oncology. As the hospice movement has grown in this country, palliative care has developed into an integral part (rather than the antithesis) of comprehensive cancer care. Palliative care must be integrated earlier into the continuum of cancer care, and palliative, symptom-modifying therapy should be provided simultaneously with disease-modifying therapy from diagnosis. The goal of the NCCN palliative care guidelines is to help assure that each patient with cancer experiences the best possible quality of life throughout the illness trajectory. These guidelines are intended to help oncology teams provide the best care possible for their patients with incurable cancer.
