palliative care guidelined

“New clinical practice guidelines for palliative care have been released by the National Consensus Project, with support from John A. Hartford Association (JAHF) for the evidence review. They include tools, resources and examples to give patients and their caregivers relief from the symptoms and stress of serious illness, based on need, not prognosis. The guidelines urge all health care professionals and organizations to integrate palliative care into their services across settings.

“Palliative care is the best friend of the seriously ill,” said JAHF Senior Program Officer Amy Berman.”
