ASCO Upgrades Guidelines to Include Palliative Care in Standard Oncology Care
from American Journal of Managed Care
Cancer patients should receive palliative care early and in parallel with their active treatment plan. Referral to interdisciplinary palliative care teams is optimal and can complement existing palliative care services. Caregivers for patients may be referred to palliative care services. These are the most significant recommendations of the American Society of Clinical Oncology's Ad Hoc Palliative Care Expert Panel.
