Özet

Aim: Making decisions about how to maintain general medical care and manage complications for patients in the last stage of advanced cancer is difficult. The benefits and necessity of antibiotic use in the last period of life are controversial. In this study, we aimed to investigate the frequency of antibiotic use in terminal stage cancer patients followed up with palliative care and died during their hospitalization.
