Hospice in the United States has been delineated by Medicare Conditions of Participation. Without specific palliative care financing, there are no federal standards or payments for palliative care. The National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care was originally a collaborative entity composed of six organizations and now comprises ten organizations. Its purpose is to create national standards for comprehensive quality palliative care. The Clinical Practice Guidelines delineate eight domains of quality care reflecting patient-centered care with an interdisciplinary approach across all settings. Over the course of 17 years, each edition of the guidelines has reflected the growth and maturity of palliative care and its movement from care for people with life-threatening illness to care for patients upon a diagnosis of a serious illness.
