Abstract

There are few published data on the delivery of palliative care services in the outpatient setting and virtually none on either the integration of palliative care into primary care practice or its applicability to innovative models of health care delivery, such as the patient-centered medical home and accountable care organizations. In this article, new topics for health services delivery research are suggested. Because of the lack of data, the article draws on information collected from inpatient palliative care delivery and includes anecdotal experiences from the outpatient pain medicine and palliative care clinic of an academic department of family medicine.
