In these cases, most ambulance officers were lack of knowledge to provide end-of-life care. One of the indicators was the importance of a positive attitude. In this care, excellent knowledge leads to excellent attitudes for palliative patients. This research determined the correlation between end-of-life care of ambulance officers' attitudes toward palliative patients.
