Answer

Patients whose condition relapses after multiple treatment regimens or who have poor performance status and who are therefore not candidates for further chemotherapy should be considered for palliative management and hospice care. The following services can be sought in appropriate clinical situations:

  • Pain management service

  • Nursing home

  • Terminal care facility (hospice)

  • Home care with specialized nursing support for pain management

  • Rehabilitative centers
