Why is it important?

Palliative care or also called supportive care is essential in the management of cancer patients. It has been shown that palliative care can provide significant quality of life benefit for cancer patients in the journey of their management. The present review article provided expert opinions and insights of palliative care in three different regions of the world : Asia ( Hong Kong, China), Europe (France) and North America (Canada).
