This booklet summarizes the findings and recommendations of Improving Palliative Care for Cancer (2001), for the lay Spanish-speaking reader. It describes the types of palliative care and comfort care that should be there for people dying from cancer, and the reasons why, too often, people suffer needlessly without it. The concrete steps that could be taken by society and individuals to improve access to palliative care are also laid out, in the recommendations.
