Abstract: First paragraph: Palliative care for people with chronic, life limiting, progressive conditions is a worldwide concern. Progressive illness is defined as long-term illness, that often limits daily activities and which medical interventions can control and not cure (Dowrick et al 2005). Progressive illnesses are the leading cause of death and disability (WHO 2004). Their rising incidence and prevalence creates major challenges for health and social services within individual countries and internationally (WHO 2002).
