A landmark study on the integration of palliative care during early onset of a cancer diagnosis was recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Here, lead authors Jennifer Temel, MD, and Victoria Jackson, MD, MPH discuss palliative care and the impressive study findings which showed patients experienced a better quality of life and actually lived longer than patients not receiving the same level of care at an early stage. Jim Windhorst, a stage IV, lung cancer patient describes how palliative care has helped him cope with his illness.

The end of life

Increasingly, US physicians face legal risks for doing too much or too little to help patients with end of life issues. On one hand, doctors are under more pressure to hold discussions with people who are diagnosed with terminal illnesses—exploring whether they would want to stop treatment if it became ineffective. In that case, the patient would shift to palliative care, which involves pain medications and other therapies to enhance quality of life.
