In a nutshell: The aim of the study is to describe end-of-life preferences of advanced cancer patients willing to talk about death issues. Eighty-eight advanced cancer patients were interviewed through End of Life Preferences Interview (ELPI), a 23-item interview covering a wide range of end-of-life care issues. Most interviewed subjects were home care patients. The article concludes that ELPI can be a useful instrument to adapt the model of care to the specific needs and values of each patient.
