Abstract

The prevention of suffering represents the fourth phase of a comprehensive cancer control program. The palliative care movement is responsible for the current development of programs which address the suffering of patients with advanced cancer and their families. Palliative care should be integrated with the other elements of cancer controls thus ensuring the continuity of excellent care for patients and strengthening the research and educational base of the palliative care movement.
