Hospice and Non-Hospice Palliative Care
It is the responsibility of health care professionals to ensure that a person with any life-limiting illness has a chance at being cured and maintaining a sense of wholeness.
Non-hospice palliative care is distinguished from hospice palliative care as it is offered simultaneously with life-prolonging and curative therapies for persons living with illness.
Hospice palliative care is limited to patients with terminal prognoses.

JSPH & Athena Forum – Partners in Chronic Care
Master's Degree in
Chronic Care Management
Managing chronic illness is the key to true healthcare reform.
No matter what its appearance – diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, cardiovascular disease, asthma, cancer or COPD – chronic disease is the greatest contributor to the cost of healthcare in the United States.
The Jefferson School of Population Health's online Master of Science in Chronic Care Management (MS-CCM) stresses chronic illness prevention and wellness, integrates evidence-based guidelines, includes behavioral health concerns, and appreciates cultural and individual variation.
The program prepares leaders to critically analyze, design, implement and evaluate systems to improve chronic illness prevention and care management across various health care settings and populations.
