Abstract

This article presents a historical analysis of the American hospice movement. It examines the social and political factors that created an environment for the movement to emerge. In doing so, it explores the processes by which multidisciplinary teams came together to advance hospice as a necessary healthcare reform and the challenges they faced in doing so.
