Special Issue "Advances in Supportive and Palliative Care in Cancer"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 February 2024 | Viewed by 869
Patients with advanced cancer often experience severe physical and psychological distress resulting in a significant impact on the patients’ quality of life. Palliative and supportive care focuses on improving patients’ quality of life. Since the inclusion of palliative and supportive care as a subspeciality in the American Board of Medical Specialties (2006), the field has seen an incremental growth with significant advances in symptom management of the most distressing symptoms, including pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and delirium. Another very important area of significant growth is the improvement of access to and delivery of palliative care. In this Special Issue, we aim to discuss the advances in the field of supportive and palliative care in cancer, with a focus on cancer-related symptoms and access to palliative and supportive care. Additionally, in the articles of this Special Issue, we will focus on the current challenges in the management of these palliative care issues and discuss strategies to overcome these challenges through education and research.
