Building on the success of our hospital accreditation program, DNV GL Healthcare now offers Palliative Care Program Certification. The Palliative Care Program Certification is designed to recognize excellence in inpatient Palliative Care treatment. The DNV GL Healthcare Palliative Care Program Certification (PCPC) requirements integrate the National Consensus Project Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care, 3rd edition, as well as the CMS Conditions of Participation (CoPs) for hospitals.
Palliative Care Program certification recognizes excellence in inpatient Palliative Care treatment and care delivery. The DNV GL Healthcare Palliative Care Program Certification Requirements provide a framework that assists organizations in the development and implementation of processes and systems which improve operational effectiveness and enhance positive health outcomes to improve the palliative care patient’s quality of life.
