Palliative care (PC) is an approach, which improves the quality of life (QoL) of patients and their families facing problems associated with life-threatening illness. Hospital-based specialised PC alongside cancer treatment shows better symptom management, QoL, satisfaction with care, and less psychological distress. Strong recommendations have been given to integrate PC and cancer care. Systematic screening of symptoms and needs, use of standardised care pathways, better competencies in PC at all levels, more research and palliative medicine as a new speciality in Denmark are future perspectives.
