Palliative care represents a part of a whole philosophy and approach to patient care--it should not be an isolated service at the end of life. Whole person care does not have to be limited to those imminently dying. The Palliative Care Center and Hospice of the North Shore created a Palliative Care Consultation (PCC) service in 1999 to assist those patients needing help with pain and symptoms before they qualify for hospice care.
