Résumé
Palliative patients (patients with progressive incurable illnesses) have a number of needs, early and late in their illness trajectories. This article highlights some of the most important competencies required by physicians to address these needs. They cover a broad spectrum of domains and include pain and symptom management, communication, disclosure, prognostication, and psychological, social and spiritual needs. All physicians, generalists and specialists alike, should possess the basic competencies but should also recognize that some patients, especially those not responding to initial strategies, require timely referrals to specialized palliative care teams.
