Title
Practical tools for implementing early palliative care in advanced lung cancer
Author
Abstract
We read with interest the article by Blum and Schönfeld [1]. Early introduction of palliative care (EPC) in the management of patients with advanced lung cancer is recommended because it improves quality of life and tends to produce better survival [2]. Hospital-based palliative teams mainly focus on terminal care for hospitalised patients. Involvement of the treating pulmonologist in this setting is warranted, as stated by Blum and Schönfeld [1]. We would like to show you how we started EPC in collaboration with the palliative team in our hospital (table 1).
