Hospice and palliative care programs maximize physical, psychosocial, and spiritual quality of life for individuals and families facing serious or life-limiting illness. Use of hospice by people of all ages and medical conditions has grown substantially in recent decades, as has the demand for palliative care in settings beyond hospice. This page provides relevant tools, information, and resources for social workers, who constitute one of four core disciplines in hospice and palliative care teams.
