Achieving universal coverage of palliative care: Dispelling the myths
“Myth busting” around the world!

MYTH: Having hospice and palliative care means you will die soon.
FACT: Hospice and palliative care is not just for the end of life. It is a holistic

approach that includes caregiver support, spiritual care, bereavement and much more.
The truth is...Hospice and palliative care is about having the best quality of life for however long life remains. Palliative care patients have serious illnesses that eventually bring about the end-of-life but up until then it is important to be free from pain, symptoms, and suffering. Recent studies show that many patients who receive palliative care may live longer than those receiving standard care based on a more curative model.
breathlessness and can be safely used, but other measures are also needed to address pain including counseling and social support.

MYTH: Hospice and palliative care is just for people with cancer
FACT: All those who are diagnosed with a chronic life-limiting illness can benefit

from hospice and palliative care
The truth is...Many people still think that hospice and palliative care are just for cancer patients. In the early days of hospice most patients had cancer but as hospice and palliative care have grown, more patients with non-cancer life threatening conditions are being cared for. These conditions include heart, lung, liver, kidney, brain, and motor neuron diseases as well as very frail elders. International research shows that about 70% of all people who die would benefit from access to palliative care services

MYTH: Palliative care manages pain through the use of addictive narcotics. 

FACT: Palliative care is holisitc care that provides psychosocial and spiritual
care along with pain and symptom management.
The truth is... The founder of the modern hospice movement, Dame Cicely Saunders, came up with the concept of “total pain” to describe how patients with life limiting illnesses experience suffering in many dimensions. These include physical, social, psychological, and spiritual or existential suffering. Pain relievers like morphine are essential to good palliative care to relieve pain and other symptoms and can be safely used, but other measures are also needed to address pain including counseling and social support.
