Aims & Scope

Palliative Medicine Reports (PMR) is the open access companion journal to the Journal of Palliative Medicine. PMR publishes open access peer-reviewed articles covering medical, psychosocial, policy, and legal issues in serious illness and end-of-life care.

PMR also considers a variety of front matter material that is available to both clinical and lay audiences and will present essential information for professionals in hospice and palliative medicine, focusing on improving quality of life for patients and their families, and the latest developments in drug and non-drug treatments.

From caregiver and palliative care nursing concerns and considerations, to educational design, PMR is the go-to open access resource for family members of palliative patients, palliative and hospice clinicians and nurses, and palliative patients around the globe.  

Palliative Medicine Reports is under the editorial leadership of Editor-in-Chief Charles F. von Gunten, MD, PhDVice President, Medical Affairs, Hospice and Palliative Medicine for OhioHealth and other leading investigators. 

The views, opinions, findings, conclusions and recommendations set forth in any Journal article are solely those of the authors of those articles and do not necessarily reflect the views, policy or position of the Journal, its Publisher, its editorial staff or any affiliated Societies and should not be attributed to any of them.
