Hospice Election… the sooner the better, for everyone.

In Aug 2010, The New England Journal of Medicine published an article stating:

“Terminally ill patients who received palliative comfort care services lived nearly three months longer and enjoyed an improved quality of life compared to those who didn’t receive the attention of a palliative care team.”

          Surveys show 60% of patients said they would like to have been referred sooner.
