COMPASSIONATE HEALTH CARE MIND HEALTH SOLUTIONS

Background The end of life care phase (EoL), being defined when curative treatment is not possible and disease is likely to cause death within 12 months, can be traumatic for the patient and care giver. Indeed, EoL symptoms dominate the clinical picture and contribute to impaired quality of life. Even when people do not experience significant psychological distress, they may still struggle to adjust to the social, emotional, and personal changes brought on by the EoL. From this perspective, supporting caregivers’ and healthcare providers’ well-being is an important contributor to patients’ experiences and to the health of the healthcare system, both in terms of informal and formal care.
