Palliative care services are rapidly evolving in cancer care organisations. In palliative care processes, administratives are involved without acknowledging that they may hinder rather than facilitate the path of palliative care in respect to cancer patients. Comprehending a palliative care organisation, without looking at current running processes is groundless. Therefore, a critical understanding of palliative care processes is necessary for improving respective cancer care systems. In this research palliative care Business Process Models (BPMs) have been developed to empower palliative care domain experts not only attaining a critical understanding of the currently running palliative care operations, but also in informing further required improvements with associated implications on cancer patients. Amongst the key outcomes of developing and analysing palliative BPMs in a cancer care organisation revealed identifying gaps, limitations, challenges, and opportunities to reflectively improve palliative care processes in cancer care centres. Finally, this research suggests further re-engineering of palliative care processes as reference models that may be instantiated in specific socio-cultural, person-centered, and other contextual settings aimed at improved qualitative palliative care for cancer patients.
