Drs. Harrison, Garrett, and Ritchie Publish in the Journal of Palliative Medicine

Drs. Krista Harrison, Sarah Garrett, Christine Ritchie and colleagues at the University of North Carolina and the Four Seasons Compassion for Life Hospice published “Community-Based Palliative Care Consultations: Comparing Dementia to Nondementia Serious Illnesses” in the Journal of Palliative Medicine. This study used a palliative care registry data to characterize and compare people with dementia to people with non-dementia serious illness at the time of a first palliative care consultation, as a step towards improving dementia-specific palliative care services and care models.
