Pain management is one of the primary goals of hospice- keeping the patient comfortable and managing symptoms to ensure the quality and expectancy of end of life care has been met. In addition to pain medication, the use of traditional psychological interventions such as biofeedback, hypnosis, relaxation and imagery techniques are used to provide skills that increase the client’s awareness and control of pain.
The hospice care team will evaluate a patient’s pain on every visit using pain rating scales and
the expertise of the clinician.
