Slide notes:Hospice is the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury. Hospice care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patients needs and wishes. Support is provided to the patients loved ones as well. At the center of hospice and palliative care is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. Hospice services can be obtained through a variety of provider settings, including hospitals, ambulatory settings, or in the patients home. 24
