NIH issues Spanish-language patient resource on palliative care

November 7, 2011

The National Institute of Nursing Research, part of the National Institutes of Health, has issued a Spanish-language brochure explaining palliative care for patients. The brochure also is available in English. "By providing this information in Spanish, we seek to increase the number of provider-patient conversations about palliative care resources, so that fewer patients suffer needlessly from pain and distressing symptoms," said NINR Director Patricia Grady.
