Some members of the Hospice & Palliative Care Federation provide palliative care services for patients with life-limiting illnesses earlier in the course of their disease and who still may be in active treatment. Sometimes patients choose these services when the goal of care begins to transition from cure to the relief of pain and suffering.
These programs may offer pain and symptom management, assessment, consultation, or supportive services to the patient and family. They may be provided as a program to the hospice, in cooperation with a home health or visiting nurse association, through a group medical practice, or within a hospital or extended care facility. For more information, contact the program directly.

Some H&PCFM member licensed hospices offer palliative services to persons with life-threatening illness who are not eligible for admission to hospices because they are choosing to pursue care directed at cure or because their prognosis is unlikely to be six months or less should the disease run its normal course. These services, offered in conjunction with a visiting nurse association, hospital or extended care facility, may include a pre-hospice consultation by a Hospice Medical Director; palliative care assessment; pain and symtpom management; advance caree planning; or bridge programs.
