.Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care, 4th edition create a blueprint for excellence by establishing a comprehensive foundation for gold-standard palliative care, including evidence-based processes and practices for providing safe and reliable high-quality care for all people living with serious illness, regardless of their diagnosis, prognosis, age or where they live or receive care.  The guidelines expand on the eight domains of palliative care identified in the previous edition:

1. Structure and Processes of Care
2. Physical Aspects of Care
3. Psychological and Psychiatric Aspects of Care
4. Social Aspects of Care
5. Spiritual, Religious and Existential Aspects of Care
6. Cultural Aspects of Care
7. Care of People Nearing the End of Life
8. Ethical and Legal Aspects of Care

The guidelines focus on specific clinical and organizational strategies, including treatment considerations and screening and assessment elements, facilitated by practice examples, tools, and resources. The guidelines were developed by the National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care, comprised of 16 national organizations with extensive expertise in and experience with palliative care and hospice, and were published by the National Coalition for Hospice and Palliative Care.
