The oncology and palliative care services in Cyprus were reviewed looking especially on changes that occurred recently.

Especially efforts should be made to improve communication between hospitals and palliative care organizations. The Ministry of Health should also take the initiative to get all palliative care organizations to work together under an official body and integrate palliative care into mainstream health service provision and education.
