• Hospice Care

    Hospice is comprehensive care for patients at the end-of-life provided by a team, typically including physicians, nurses, social workers, spiritual advisors, and volunteers. This multi-disciplinary team works together with the patient, caregiver, and/or family to provide medical, emotional, and spiritual support as needed.   

    Family physicians by virtue of their comprehensive training, experience, and continuous patient relationships are uniquely positioned to lead hospice care by serving as hospice physicians and medical directors. (1979) (DEC2020BOD)
