Abstract

This article introduces a series on emergencies in oncology and palliative care, focusing on recognition and management of emergency scenarios during the care of cancer and palliative care patients. Palliative care emergencies can be divided into two categories: imminently life-threatening and potentially resulting in a persistent and worsened morbidity. A calm and efficient approach is achieved by anticipating and meticulously planning for potential events, for example, a haemorrhage from a fungating tumour near a major vessel.
