The course of care of a patient with a cancer whose evolution is pejorative, is marked by difficult announcements, called "bad news". In the palliative phase, prognostic announcements are at the forefront. Of these, the announcement of a transfer to the Palliative Care Unit has not been the subject of any specific studies to the best of our knowledge. It therefore seemed interesting to us to explore the stakes of this particular announcement, a source of upheaval for the doctor and the patient, by gathering the point of view of each one.
The objective of our study is to analyze the methods of announcing a transfer to the Palliative Care Unit and the perception of this announcement by the doctor and his patient with an incurable cancer.

A cancer registry mandated under the National Cancer Act of 1971 to operate and maintain a population-based cancer reporting system, reporting periodically estimates of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. The Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is a continuing project of the National Cancer Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Among its goals, in addition to assembling and reporting cancer statistics, are the monitoring of annual cancer incident trends and the promoting of studies designed to identify factors amenable to cancer control interventions.
