Abstract

Hospice began in China with a research center founded in 1988. After a survey measured national attitudes about death, the ground was laid for the first clinical ward to be opened in October, 1990. The Chinese philosophy of hospice is consistent with the rest of the world--to provide holistic care to improve quality of life while keeping the family as the core unit of care.
