Palliative Performance Scale


The scale below is a tool used by hospice agencies and other medical professionals to help assess an individual’s readiness for hospice care.  This is a good tool for families and patients to be familiar with, as well, however.  The better educated we all are, the better we are able to make decisions about our own or a loved one’s situation.

A very good site to visit concerning hospice issues, including this tool, is the INCTR Palliative Care Handbook.

Best wishes, Bert
