• Improvement in access to palliative care services and medications
• Education of professionals and the public
• The enacting of unambiguous laws related to issues in EOLC
• Encouragement of participation of the community in care
• Monitoring and ensuring standards of care and
• Provision of continued supportive measures for the families/caregivers throughout the illness trajectory and even after death." ...
