An important area for improvement in palliative care for the elderly is highlighted, with a range of possibilities proposed to implement care according to the patient's life situation. This is based on the patient's needs and aims to preserve the quality of life, dignity and rehabilitation of the patient, as well as to reduce the burden for the family. For this, consideration should be given to the fact that the elderly are faced with a gradual and progressive decline as they get older and sicker, and that they need this type of care to provide control of the physical, psychological, social and spiritual symptoms. Furthermore, challenges must be met to develop these actions with promotion, prevention and encouragement. It is necessary to ensure that the elderly and their families receive home-based care and multidisciplinary advice. © 2015 Sociedad Mexicana de Oncologiá. Source

The indiscriminate use of this group has contributed to increase or precipitate the incidence of patients with kidney failure. Therefore the importance of knowing this complications, in order to be able to treat, prevent and avoid this complication. This makes us considerate other group of pain killers, such as opioids, which have better analgesic effect and less impact in kidneys, this makes them versatile in various cases: like acute pain, chronic pain and breakthrough pain. © 2015 Sociedad Mexicana de Oncología.

Until the year 2001, Mexico's health care system was characterised by the lack of access to health services for more than half the population, a situation conditioned by the labour factor and socioeconomic status. This represented an enormous challenge for the health sector, since a universal security system needed to be built for more than 50 million Mexicans who lacked health coverage provided by official institutions. Through the Ministry of Health, the Federal Government promoted a program for financial protection in terms of health for the population with no social security, which later was the basis to offer financial protection to the population who lacked this possibility through the voluntary public health assurance option, to constitute what is currently known as Social Health Protection System. The coverage is specified in the Universal Health Services Catalogue, which was designed to include the main causes of morbidity and mortality, complemented by the Protection Fund against Catastrophic Expenses and Medical Insurance Program Siglo XXI. © 2015 Sociedad Mexicana de Oncología.

Developing palliative care units is necessary in healthcare systems, especially in hospitals with paediatric haematology-oncology services. It has to be acknowledged that children with life-threatening diagnoses and diseases require comprehensive management, and symptom control must be effective due to the suffering of the patient and anxiety caused to the family. In turn, it is important for paediatric palliative care teams to know and recognise the sources of suffering and their relationship with physical, psychological, social and spiritual aspects, which have to be comprehensively treated in order to control symptoms effectively. Active, continuous and total care has to be ensured, establishing a balance between the goals of the parents (legal guardians) and the patients. © 2015 Sociedad Mexicana de Oncologiá. Source

A relationship between genotype and palliative care may seem distant or unlikely. The genotype is defined before fertilisation, and palliative care provides quality to the rest of an individual's life. However, these parallel lines that seem determinant or definitory, converge and articulate in Epigenetics, which shows that gene expression is susceptible to modification by environmental stimuli. Thus, whether a given disease occurs or not, the immune response and response to a specific treatment largely depend on the epigenome present in a particular individual. Reinforcing the concept of preventive medicine, and the return to a healthy lifestyle being the pillars of health, the Social Protection in Health System directs its efforts, not only to primary care, but also to a wide range of interventions included in the Universal Catalogue of Health Services (CAUSES), focused on prevention and early detection of disease, as well as to the funding of 29 priority programs from the Sub-secretary for Prevention and Health Promotion, through at least 20% of Annex IV contents. In this way, the Social Protection in Health System may fulfil its commitment with health in Mexico. © 2015 Published by Masson Doyma México S.A. Source
