Background: Palliative care is a technique to enhance the quality of life of patient suffering from devitalizing illness. This literature review is the work accomplished to pave the strong foundation of palliative care to the needy patients and their families. At the level of hospice care, besides doctors«SQ» and nurses«SQ» skills, tender care and affectionate support is much more needed then medicines. Materials and Methods: Literature search was performed using the terms «DQ»palliative care«DQ», «DQ»spiritual«DQ», «DQ»physiotherapy«DQ», «DQ»cancer patients«DQ» and «DQ»emotional aspects«DQ». The full articles available in English were reviewed. Results: Palliative care is a sophisticated requirement in cancer patients. Most of the available literature has stressed that there is a large gap between the actual demands and provision of palliative care including spiritual, physiotherapy, and emotional aspects in cancer patients. Conclusions: This article discusses various aspects of palliative care and how they influence attitude of the patient and his or her family toward the curing therapy. This provides guidance how nurses and doctor can create non-medication environment for ending suffering and pain for better quality of life by tending them spiritually, physically, and emotionally.
