Abstract

Cancer is a leading cause of death in Thailand, yet the Mahavachiralongkorn Thanyaburi Cancer Center is the only facility utilizing hospice and homecare programs to address the needs of terminal cancer patients. Our project developed a Thai-specific patient quality of life survey to assess their program's benefits. Coupled with protocols to record and compile patient data, our project provided the Cancer Center with a framework for proving the value of their services and promoting them to the Thai medical community.
