Title:
Palliative care provision and its impact on psychological morbidity in cancer patients.
Authors:
Craven, Olive
Abstract:
In response to many influences, palliative care services in the UK are evolving rapidly, and are increasingly challenged to demonstrate equity, access and effectiveness. This article discusses the principles, philosophy and status of palliative care in the UK in the context of recent NHS developments. A case study is employed in order to critically evaluate the implementation of the palliative care approach, focusing on the specific issue of the assessment of anxiety and depression in the cancer setting. The provision of a comprehensive and integrated clinical service is a constant challenge in this patient group. In order to increase awareness and facilitate further development of patient services, and ultimately improve clinical practice, several factors are highlighted. These include the impact of multiprofessional team care, the problems inherent in the diagnosis of depression and the question of whether cancer nurses are adequately prepared to handle patients' psychological morbidity.
