Résumé
Documentation in palliative care is often restricted to medical and sociodemographic information, and the assessment of physical and psychological symptoms or the quality of life. In order to overcome the lack of comprehensive information, we have evaluated the utility of the INTERMED-a biopsychosocial assessment method to document integrated information of patients' needs-in 82 consecutive patients for whom a palliative care consultation was requested. Results confirm the biopsychosocial heterogeneity of the sample, and the importance of integrated information to clinical, scientific, educational, and health care policy agendas. The INTERMED could become a useful method to tailor interdisciplinary interventions based on comprehensive patient needs assessment.
