This chapter outlines the role of the advanced practice registered nurse who provides palliative care working within a hospice program. It delineates the benefits of providing palliative care not only to patients in the community, but also to hospice organizations, hospitals, and medical providers. It highlights how community-based palliative care can assist in reducing hospital readmissions by focusing on transitions of care points. It further examines the practical implications of performing palliative care in the community setting and the differences in the role of the advanced practice registered nurse providing care to patients receiving hospice services compared to patients receiving palliative care. It discusses how advanced practice registered nurses are uniquely qualified to provide services through this type of program, focusing on continuity of care throughout the disease trajectory.
