Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This study addresses a gap in knowledge regarding OT in hospice care. We examined patient profiles and services provided and compared demographics and outcomes for patients with versus without OT in the context of hospice care. We analyzed the de-identified data retrieved from a large national survey: The National Home and Hospice Care Survey (NHHCS) of 2007.
