Cancer patients who chose to die at home lived longer than those who died in hospitals, a large study from Japan found.

The findings suggest that doctors shouldn’t hesitate to allow dying cancer patients to receive palliative care at home, the study authors said.

Palliative care does not attempt to cure a person, but is often described as comfort care or symptom management.
