The British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), in its Ethics Guide on "Anti-Euthanasia Arguments," (accessed Apr. 10, 2018) explained that:

“Palliative care is physical, emotional and spiritual care for a dying person when cure is not possible. It includes compassion and support for family and friends.

Competent palliative care may well be enough to prevent a person feeling any need to contemplate euthanasia.”
