    The Crucial Role of Primary Palliative Care in Healthcare
    (3 min read)

    In a perfect healthcare world, advance care planning conversations are initiated early in the patient journey, advance directives and health care proxies are documented, and the patient’s healthcare team has access to this information.

    The reality is far from ideal. Care decisions are often made in the hospital during a health crisis. There is little time to have a thoughtful discussion between a trusted provider, the patient, and their family about illness trajectory, goals of care, and end-of-life wishes.

    A growing number of hospitals have started palliative care programs to deliver whole-person care and ensure the care provided aligns with a person’s preferences; however, these interventions often come too late in the disease process to improve quality of life. Primary palliative care can play a crucial role in filling this gap.
