Abstract

Doctors in all specialties will be involved in the care of patients with terminal malignant and non-malignant disease where the aim is palliation rather than cure. An understanding of the principles of symptom management in this context is therefore a generic skill that all doctors require. This article provides practical guidance on how to manage common physical and psychological symptoms encountered in palliative medicine.
