Dispelling myths about hospice

In Recognition of World Hospice and Palliative Care Day, Oct. 12, the Worldwide Palliative Care Alliance and its partners are focusing on “dispelling the myths,” and encouraging people to promote the facts about hospice and palliative care.

Also, advocates, patients and caregivers want to improve access to palliative care for people with life-limiting conditions by integrating palliative care into existing services.

To ensure all those with life-limiting conditions are cared for with dignity and according to their wishes, Terrace Hospice Society is asking for integrated hospice and palliative care health services.

A few myths and the facts about hospice and palliative care are found here.
