The goal of care at the end-of-life has changed in recent years to encompass not only the relief of suffering but also improve the quality of death. Palliative care offers a coordinated and multidisciplinary approach to improving the quality of life and quality of care of individuals and their families facing illness at the end-of-life. This manuscript examines the end-of-life of older adults in Mexico and the factors associated with pain in this period of their life.
