  1. Cancer patients receiving hospice care
  2. Background of the Study

Generally, cancer is a group of diseases that involve abnormal cell growth and the abnormal cell growth has the potential to spread to other body parts. The cancer condition is also referred to as a malignant tumor, but this does not mean all tumors are cancerous. On the other hand, hospice care is the kind of care that is offered to someone by a team of healthcare professionals and volunteers towards their end of life. In this case, they hospice care involves the provision of medical, psychological and spiritual support. With regard to cancer patients, hospice care is offered to particular patients who are expected to live for six months or less. Unfortunately, it was predicted that in America there will be an estimated 1,658,370 new cancer cases and 589,430 cancer deaths in the U.S (Cancer.org, 2015).
