Palliative Care and Hospice

Resources for Healthcare Professionals

Goals of Care Coalition of NJ strives to bring healthcare professionals the latest resources and information on palliative care and hospice.

Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care, 4th Edition, create a blueprint for excellence by establishing a comprehensive foundation for gold-standard palliative care for all people living with serious illness, regardless of their diagnosis, prognosis, age, or setting.

This document provides helpful information about the different types of care a person may encounter at the end of life. Topics include: palliative care, hospice care, comfort care, advance directives, and more.

The POLST form is a healthcare planning tool that helps individuals work closely with their medical team to describe their medical preferences and goals when facing a serious illness.
