Abstract: Awareness of their medical prognosis enables terminally ill patients to make decisions on treatments and end-of-life care/planning, and to reach acceptance. Yet many patients receiving palliative care are unaware of their prognosis, even when death is imminent and has been discussed with health care providers. A better understanding of patient characteristics associated with prognostic awareness is needed in order to develop interventions aimed at improving it.
