Health systems have to change and embrace the need to develop innovative approaches and technologies for end-of-life care. All resources in society have a role to play – families, communities, health and care providers and technology. There is, however, a dearth of appropriately trained professionals. The clinical specialty of palliative care, which provides pain and sympton control, is all too rarely available.
