Dear readers,

Our journal is the official publication of Inonu University Medical Faculty and published uninterruptedly for 25 years. It was first published as the name of Inonu University Medical Journal and later as Journal of Turgut Ozal Medical Center. During its publication period, the journal accepted Turkish or English articles for publication.

Abstracting in an international index is just a paramount objective in the 25th year of the journal. Because of this goal, it was necessary to make a decision both in terms of journal name and publication language. It was important in this respect that the name of a general medical journal should be related to medicine again and it should be in English. For these reasons, the name of the journal was switched to Annals of Medical Research and its publication language is changed to in English. The logo of the journal was chosen as an apricot, which is the symbol of our city Malatya, the world capital of apricot. I hope the journal succeeds with its new name. Annals of Medical Research is It is published monthly.

Abstract

Aim: The present study makes a retrospective analysis of the records of patients admitted to a recently established district state hospital palliative care center for treatment.
Material and Methods: The records of the first 252 patients treated as inpatients in a recently established palliative care center between November 2015 and April 2017 were reviewed retrospectively.
Results: The study included 252 patients who were treated between the specified dates following the date of establishment. The mean age of the patients was 74 (18–103) years; 56.8% were male and 43.2% were female. The mean length of hospital stay was 15.2 days. Of the total, 134 (53.1%) patients required analgesics; 219 (86.6%) received dietician support; 73 (28.9%) received psychologist support; and 205 (81%) received physiotherapist support. Of the patients, 75.4% were discharged with full recovery, 15.4% were transferred to the intensive care unit and 9.2% died.
Conclusion: Palliative care has recently gained importance as a multidisciplinary approach. The authors believe that the establishment of such centers in district hospitals will reduce overcrowding in the larger centers, and will allow patients to access this service closer to their place of residence.

Keywords: Palliative care; pain; multidisciplinary approach
