Abstract

Survival prediction for end stage cancer patientsremains an important task in Palliative Medicine. Previously more of an art form, survival prediction has now become increasingly objective, utilizing statistical estimates of survival. Both clinician prediction survival and actuarial estimation of survival have their uses and drawbacks. This article examines the pros and cons of each and how both can be utilized at the bedside.
