Evolution of Hope - Studies have found that a hopeful patient is more likely to experience good medical outcomes than a patient who has lost all hope. It is important to preserve this feature while balancing it against the reasonable expectation of success. Giving up hope of cure is not the same as giving up hope all together. Accepting the inevitability of death is not the same as giving up hope. One can still hope for love, comfort and solace in your final days.
