Abstract

Healthcare authorities have emphasised the need to develop palliative care for everybody suffering from life-threatening diseases, including people suffering from medical organ failure. In 2011, the Danish Health Authority requested that all medical associations developed guidelines for palliative care. Until now, this has been fulfilled by only four associations. The aim of this review is to summarise the status of the palliative care needs and palliative care across diagnosis for patients suffering from life-threatening medical organ failure and to draw attention to the lack of care and the importance of guidelines.
