Background and aim: Palliative care is a useful approach to overcome the symptoms of the disease and improve the quality of life of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. This care is not implemented sufficiently or it is only implemented in cancer patients. The current study aimed to analyze the concept of palliative care in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Method: The present study was conducted with the Walker and Avant approach in eight steps by searching for studies from reliable databases using the keywords "palliative care", "chronic obstructive pulmonary disease", "integrated palliative care", "COPD". The inclusion criteria of accurate english articles were between 2000 and 2022. Finally, 9 articles related to the concept were analyzed.
Results: Palliative care is a complex and multidimensional concept in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Due to progressive weakness caused by chronic disease, Ineffective treatment, Inability to take care of oneself, Fear of death And separation from the family, physical, emotional and psychological problems require palliative care for the patients and their families.
Conclusion: The conceptual definition of palliative care in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease can help healthcare providers to better understand this concept for the well-being of the patient and family through the relief of symptoms, improvement of quality of life and finally death with dignity.
