Culture, traditions, beliefs, and religion play an important part in every Filipino‘s life and death. In addition, the family is central and carries a significant importance especially in healthcare decisions. Families are generally very involved in caring for their loved ones who are dying and equally expect healthcare providers to do the same. These are the hospice/palliative care activists who, against all odds, continuously try to improve their patients‘ quality of life and provide them with elements of dignity.
