In aging societies, the last phase of people's lives fundamentally changes and challenges traditional  geriatric medicine and palliative care. Both disciplines must work closely together, and geriatric palliative care (GPC) should be seen as an interdisciplinary field of care and research based on the synergy and  ethics of care between the two.
