Zusammenfassung

Die Forschung in der Palliativmedizin konnte in den vergangenen Jahren deutliche Fortschritte in Bezug auf Methodik, Vernetzung, Klärung forschungsethischer Probleme und wissenschaftliche Erkenntnisse verzeichnen. Mit der frühzeitigen Integration palliativmedizinischer Behandlungsansätze in die Onkologie eröffnen sich weitere forschungsrelevante Themenfelder, die palliativmedizinisches Handeln im interdisziplinären Tumortherapiekontext adressieren. Die vorliegende Übersicht beschreibt den derzeitigen Stand palliativmedizinisch relevanter Forschung insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund interdisziplinärer Tumortherapie.

Oncological palliative care

Integration of research

Abstract

Research with and for palliative care patients has successfully overcome a number of methodological, organizational or ethical obstacles and has provided a wide range of scientifically sound knowledge in palliative care, including clinical, structural and ethical issues. By integrating palliative care early in the clinical course of cancer patients, another scope of research issues will be opened addressing palliative care needs and goals in the context of multidisciplinary cancer care. This article describes relevant scientific issues and current research activities in oncological palliative care.
