New Palliative Care Guidelines Released

New clinical practice guidelines for palliative care have been released by the National Consensus Project, with support from The John A. Hartford Foundation (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 healthcare 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, speaking about her own experience during a recent lecture on living well with Stage IV cancer and in a keynote with the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute.
