Interests: palliative care
The field of palliative care has undergone tremendous advances in recent years, particularly among patients suffering from cancer. However, despite all the existing evidence and excellent research, it remains a relatively young field with numerous challenges and desirable developments. Poignantly, COVID-19 revealed both how important and yet vulnerable the care for patients with incurable diseases continues to be.
It is therefore with great pleasure that I am allowed to specifically focus on innovative approaches in palliative care within the scope of this Special Issue. Thus, thrilling topics may include synergies between “traditional” oncological disciplines and palliative care, novel approaches to the provision of healthcare (e.g., remote care, smart devices, and mobile applications) or the development of more personalized and precise treatments.
I also encourage you to submit projects that aim to lower thresholds between curative and palliative care—even if they cover key topics in palliative care only secondarily.
