It's National Hospice and Palliative Care Month

November is the National Hospice and Palliative Care Month and NHPCO is leading outreach efforts this month to help people understand that "It's about How to Live!".

Read the NHPCO proclamation, which marks 2017 as the 50th anniversary of St. Christopher's Hospice in London and the 35th anniversary of the Medicare hospice benefit in the United States. NHPCO continues to be concerned about the number of people who benefit from the care and services that hospices provide for a short period of time. NHPCO’s newly issued report, Facts and Figures: Hospice Care in America (PDF) indicates that just over 40 percent of Medicare beneficiaries accessing hospice received care for 14 days or less in 2015. The hospice interdisciplinary team is ideally suited to provide care and support to patients and family caregivers throughout the last months of life, not just the last days,” said Edo Banach, NHPCO president and CEO.

Learn more about the work going on this month to raise public awareness on the importance of end of life care.
