Aims & Scope

Palliative Medicine Reports (PMR) is the open access companion journal to the Journal of Palliative Medicine. PMR publishes 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 palliative and hospice clinicians and nurses and palliative patients and their families around the globe.  

Palliative Medicine Reports is under the editorial leadership of Editor-in-Chief Christopher A. Jones, MD, MBA, HMDC, FAAHPM, Duke University, and other leading investigators.
