One of the important aspects of hospice care is the interdisciplinary team approach to providing services that focus on the physical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of patients, as well as providing support and education for family members.
The hospice interdisciplinary team includes physicians, nurses, home health aides, social workers, counselors, chaplains, therapists and trained volunteers. There is a misperception that once a patient elects hospice care services, they can no longer keep their personal doctor, which is not the case. The fact is, the hospice care team partners with the patient and the patient’s primary care physician in providing comprehensive services in support of the patient’s goals for care.
