From Ethics to Palliative Care: A Community Hospital Experience

Health care institutions struggle with the challenge of providing excellent palliative and end-of-life care to patients while providing curative therapies at the same time. This article describes the efforts and accomplishments of the ethics committee of a community hospital system to provide for the palliative and end-of-life needs of its patients.
