Palliative care is an essential component of the comprehensive cancer care. From the submissive beginning, due to compassion and the enthusiasm of Cicely Saunders, palliative care has now grown as a multimodality approach to specialized medical care and is one of the significant developments in the modern medicine.

As we all know around seventy percentage of the patient with cancer requires palliative care in various stage of their disease in variegated forms. So the goal would be to provide symptom relief, improve quality of life and help live a dignified life. Aside from pain and symptoms management, this conference will try to address the role of chemotherapy, target therapy, surgery and radiation therapy in palliative setting to ease the patient’s distress.
