NC Partnership for Compassionate Care


The mission of the NC Partnership for Compassionate Care is to ensure that patients’ end-of-life care choices are openly discussed, documented, and honored.  Our aim is to provide educational resources to the community and health care professionals to improve the quality of care at the end of life.
