The hospice and palliative care specialty is grounded in a care model that relies on interdisciplinary teamwork. The aim of this chapter is to discuss hospice team communication and the coordination of person-centered care. Barriers to hospice teamwork are discussed, including face-to-face communication and e-hospice initiatives, to enable patient and family caregiver representation. Strategies used in hospice team meetings are also highlighted, including how the different core professionals blur professional boundaries to enable collaborative symptom management and psychosocial support.
