NCP Guidelines (2018)

NCP Guidelines (2018)

In January 2017, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation awarded a two-year grant to support a stakeholder summit and the development, endorsement, dissemination and implementation of community-based palliative care guidelines.  These guidelines will be modeled on the success and strategies of the National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care’s (NCP) Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care, 2013 – and is scheduled for publication July 2018.  Read the press release.

To launch this effort, a NCP Stakeholder Strategic Directions Summit was held June 29-30, 2017 to bring together key national organizations to discuss and define essential elements of quality primary and specialty palliative care services in the community. Learn more here.

Also, a NCP Steering Committee and a NCP Writing Workgroup  have been established to create the new Guidelines with the NCP staff.
