Hospice Groups

Hospice PhilippinesHospice and Palliative Care is care for the terminally-ill which aims to provide comprehensive relief of symptoms using the skills of a mix of health disciplines, together with education and assistance for both patient and family so that they are able to maintain care in the place which best suits the patient’s needs.
Hospice home care started in the Philippines in October 1991 through the initiative of then PCSI President, the late Dr. Mita Pardo de Tavera, which also paved the way for the creation of different hospices in the country and the establishment of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Council of the Philippines (NHPCCP), or Hospice Philippines, in 2004.

Past and present officers of Hospice Philippines pose for posterity during the association’s General Assembly held at the PCS Patients Lounge. PCS sits as member of the Board of Directors and as corporate secretary.

Since the formation of Hospice Philippines, the PCSI has embarked on other noble and fruitful undertakings to advance the concept for quality end-of-life care.

Hospice and Palliative Care continue to be part of the PCS’ programs which cater to terminally-ill cancer patients. Since the concept and the specialty is relatively new to the country, a major part of hospice advocacy is in organizing the training for health professionals and volunteers. Aside from Metro Manila, PCS helped organize workshops in the cities of Cagayan de Oro (Mindanao) and Dumaguete (Visayas).

The joint PCS-SM Foundation-Lung Center of the Philippines’ project Felicidad T. Sy Pediatric Hospice Center based in the same hospital celebrated its 1st year of operation in 2012.

The PCS sits as board member and corporate secretary of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Council of the Philippines (NCHHP), an association that networks all existing hospice and hospice support systems in the country.
The PCSI has been an active partner in the Technical Working Group (TWG) that works on policies for the provision and distribution of free morphine tablets to concerned groups including Hospice Philippines. The TWG was an offshoot of the Department of Health’s Integrated Pain Control Program which is an essential component of the Philippine Cancer Control Program.
