The survey gives result that the rural area has less  palliative care facility compare to the urban area. The palliative care has to improve in the rural area also and the people has to understand the importance of palliative care and the required information has to give for the rural person about the disease so that they can take palliative care. Services less available in rural area that may contribute to the lower proportion of home deaths in rural areas include the lower availability of home-based services, the lack of 24-hour care, and delays in service provision.

Some   of the serious Diseases may require special care.  Due to the complex care needs of patients with advanced life-limiting illness it is our experience that a multidisciplinary approach to care can optimize the patient and family illness experience for this vulnerable population. As the illness progresses and care needs become increasingly complex, achieving high-quality whole-person care often necessitates care in multiple settings like inpatient hospitalization, outpatient clinic, and home-based care. Early identification and involvement with palliative care provides multidisciplinary resource for advanced care planning, supportive care, and expert level symptom management. Collaboration between patient/family, oncology providers, and palliative care can occur concurrently with medical treatments, providing for a team-based approach to advanced malignancies, focused on patient-centered care and quality of life.

Clinical ethics is a practical discipline that provides a structured approach for identifying, analyzing, and resolving ethical issues in medical care . Health Professional has to follow some ethical issues in the palliative care like issues related to autonomy, decision-making, whether to withhold or withdraw treatment, nutrition and hydration. According to Belmont report the principles of ethical issues are

·         Respect for persons (autonomy)

·         Beneficence

·         Justice. 

So the Nurses working within a specific dominant culture and tradition need to respect the dominant tradition of the institution where they practice at the same time negotiating between ethical systems to meet the goals of the patient

Palliative care in non-malignant Disease is very important and the existing care method has to update. The palliative care must be based on need, not diagnosis, and the physical and psychological needs of patients with advanced non-malignant disease differ little from those of patients with cancer. The diseases Like Chronic Heart failure, Chronic Lung disease , End Stage renal disease need complex specialist  rather than specific diagnoses, the prospect becomes less daunting. Even if there is insufficient capacity for specialist palliative care services to support all patients with non-malignant diseases, care could be improved by the dissemination of expertise and knowledge.

Geriatrics is a specialty that focuses on health care of elderly people. It aims to promote health by preventing and treating diseases and disabilities in older adults. There is no set age at which patients may be under the care of a geriatrician or geriatric physician, a physician who specializes in the care of elderly people. Rather, this decision is determined by the individual patient's needs, and the availability of a specialist. Geriatrics differs from standard adult medicine because it focuses on the unique needs of the elderly person. The aged body is different physiologically from the younger adult body, and during old age, the decline of various organ systems becomes manifest. Previous health issues and lifestyle choices produce a different constellation of diseases and symptoms in different people.

Palliative care and Rehabilitation medicine share the most common goals. They strive to maximize physical function and emotional well-being to the highest extent possible given the nature of the underlying disease process. Many patients with End-Stage disease experience symptoms and functional losses that diminish their quality of life. Rehabilitation and palliative care have emerged as two important parts of comprehensive medical care for patients with advanced disease. clinical experts suggests that the application of the fundamental principles of rehabilitation medicine is likely to improve their care. Physical function and independence should be maintained as long as possible to improve patients' quality of life and reduce the burden of care for the caregivers.

Emergency medicine has progressively taken a central role in the early execution of palliative care. Patients with a serious disease are likely to find themselves in an emergency section at some point along their course of illness, and they should expect to receive high-quality palliative care in that setting.
