Your Role When Your Patient Enrolls in Hospice

As the Jewish patient’s primary physician, you are in an excellent position to offer recommendations that are in line with the patient’s ethical and religious values and also reflect their medical condition and likely prognosis.

You can make the important phone call and initiate a referral to Jewish hospice services. When hospice is the right choice for the patient and their family, you can play a crucial role in alleviating physical and emotional suffering for the patient as well as their family.
