ABSTRACT
The article reports on the development of Four Seasons, a hospice care agency, of its own benchmark for palliative care in Flat Rock, North Carolina. It states that the agency has teamed up with Duke University on a research project to create a standard which will measure the quality of care of various clinical institutions. According to John Morris, medical director, the tool will be beneficial to their operation because it would help them to determine the areas in which they need to improve.
