Article Abstract

Introduction to the inaugural issue of Annals of Palliative Medicine

Authors: Howard S. Smith, Zhi-hua Zhu


Although many "palliative medicine journals" currently exist,
there remains "room" for a quality international journal;
especially one with a translational focus. We are especially
excited that this new journal is being published in China where
palliative medicine is blossoming and world-wide leaders of
"translational palliative medicine" exist. The editor-in-chiefs,
editorial board members, and publisher take great pleasure in
presenting the Annals of Palliative Medicine (APM).
