Psychiatric Palliative Care

As an epochal proportion of patients retrieving palliative care, suffer from states of anxiety, depression, delirium, or other mental symptoms, psychiatry and palliative care already join force closely in the palliative care for medical circumstances. Besides, this well-established involvement of psychiatrists in palliative care, as of now, psychiatry does not unambiguously provide palliative care for patients with mental illness outside the arena of terminal medical illness. Based on the WHO explanatory definition, of palliative care, a working definition of palliative psychological care is proposed. Palliative psychiatry emphasizes on mental health rather than medical/physical matters. We propose that the beneficiaries of palliative psychiatry are patients with severe persistent mental illness, who are at risk of therapeutic neglect and/or overly aggressive care within current paradigms. These include long-term residential care patients with severe chronic schizophrenia and insufficient quality of life, those with therapy-refractory depressions and repeated suicide attempts, and those with severe long-standing therapy-refractory anorexia nervosa. An explicitly palliative approach within psychiatry has the potential to improve quality of care, person-centredness, outcomes, and autonomy for patients with severe persistent mental illness.
