End of Life

JAMA. 2005;294(10):1278-1279. doi:10.1001/jama.294.10.1278

In the last few decades, palliative medicine has emerged in the United States as a new specialty, bringing unique expertise in the increasingly complex navigation of end-of-life care for our patients. The advances in palliative medicine largely have been documented in developed countries, such as the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Programs are also being developed across the globe, unheralded but shaping the compassionate delivery of medicine at the end of life.
