Sažetak

Palliative medicine is one of the brand new specializations in modern medicine, primarily in oncology, neurology and anesthesiology. The aim of palliative medicine is to care for the terminally ill, in the moment when the currative medicine could not effort with disease even with high tech or science achievements. Palliative medicine includes three fields: settling the symptoms, psychosocial support and end-of-life ethics.
The accessibility of palliative care must be based on the needs and must not be limited only on the type of disease, geographic location or socio-economy status of the terminally ill.
