Hospice: What Gets in the Way of Appropriate and Timely Access
Hospice care emerged in 1967 as an inpatient service in England. It has been primarily a home-based service in the US since 1974. Hospice represents a change from curative to comfort-oriented care. Its focus is to provide care for the terminally ill and family members as a single unit of care. Hospices seek to treat patients, not the disease.
