Mental health, treatment preferences, advance care planning, location, and quality of death in advanced cancer patients with dependent children
Advance Care Planning
Child of Impaired Parents
Quality of Life

Advanced cancer patients and spousal caregivers with dependent children represent a particularly distressed group that warrants further clinical attention, research, and support.
