Incurable, life-threatening illness is endemic, and it often occurs in places of conflict. In these circumstances, care delivery is often compromised or complicated. Situations of conflict occur in many places in the world, and at any time a substantial proportion of the world population is involved in conflict of one sort or other. Conflicts, such as war or terror, traumatize the involved populations. In this situation, bereavement, fear, anxiety, and depression become commonplace. The observations in this chapter are derived from experiences working with Palestinian and Israeli patients in a Jewish hospital in Jerusalem over the past 15 years.
