Dignity therapy is an emerging form of psychotherapy which helps improve end-of-life experience for patients, though it may not relieve the discomfort due to the illness. This form of therapy targets the aspect of quality of life of patients. 

"Based on the findings of this study, clinicians should consider dignity therapy a viable therapeutic approach, which can enhance end-of-life experience for patients and families confronting death. Further research exploring the beneficial effects of dignity therapy, helps to unravel the psychological, spiritual, and existential complexities for an individual facing death, and the best way to support patients with advanced and terminal illness and their families."
