Comparison of strength and limitation of early warning score and palliative prognostic scale for terminal cancer patients

Strength Limitation
Early warning score Relatively simple score calculation based on physiological parameters; Can be easily applied by not only experienced clinicians, but also paramedics; predictable for relatively short-term mortality; applicable even before hospitalization Lack of evidence for terminal cancer patients
Palliative prognostic scale Comprehensively evaluated, the accuracy of survival prediction can be further improved Its accuracy may be poor for application to patients with a short-term death prediction within 1 week
