Palliative care

I recently read Slim to None: A Journey Through the Wasteland of Anorexia Treatment and it made me wonder if the outcome might have been different had Jenny not been given palliative care at a hospice.

I googled it, and found a few articles debating this.

We should strive to keep patients alive

Palliative care does not mean giving up

Treating Anorexia Nervosa

I am quite torn.

What you guys think of palliative/terminal care in the treatment of anorexia nervosa, especially in patients with poor prognoses?
