Dr Madelaine Amurao-Amante speaks to ecancer about some of the key methods for handling difficult conversations in cancer care at the Choosing Wisely Philippines conference 2023.

She outlines the current landscape of palliative cancer care in the Philippines and highlights the important need for medical oncologists to continue to develop their communication skills.

Dr Amurao-Amante concludes by suggesting that palliative care is not something we should think about just at the end of the patient's illness but can begin from the point of diagnosis.
