Abstract


The global need for palliative care continues to grow as a result of the rising burden of non-communicable diseases and an ageing population. Each year, an estimated 40 million people are in need of palliative care. The aim of palliative care is to improve the quality of life of individuals and families who are faced with life-threatening illness, and to offer a support system which helps patients live as actively as possible until death. This study aims at discovering the perspective of patients receiving specialist palliative care at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital
