In a previous work, we showed that a weekly onco-palliative meeting (OPM) allowed earlier introduction of the PC team (PCT) and decreased aggressiveness of end-of-life (EOL) care1. We describe patient’s profile when first referred to this Integrated Onco-Palliative Care program (IOPC), the timing of the referral relatively to the course of his/her disease and the impact on the trajectory of EOL care.

We retrospectively analysed all patients reported for the first time at OPM between 2011 and 2013. We calculated an index of prec...
