Curr Hematol Malig Rep. 2016 Dec;11(6):434-440 Authors: Nickolich M, El-Jawahri A, LeBlanc TW Abstract A growing literature demonstrates that MDS is associated with significant impairments in overall quality of life. Given the poor prognosis for many patients with MDS, and the considerable morbidities associated with this disease, there is a critical need to address palliative and end-of-life care needs in this population. However, palliative and end-of-life care issues are under-represented in the MDS literature. In this article, we highlight a growing body of literature that demonstrates unmet palliative and end-of-life care…
