Welch, Lisa C., Susan C. Miller, Edward W. Martin, Aman Nanda. 2008. “Referral and Timing of Referral to Hospice Care in Nursing Homes: The Significant Role of Staff Members.” The Gerontologist. 48,4: 477-484.

This research utilizes a qualitative method to understand the process behind end-of-life care decision-making in a nursing home setting. Findings show that decisions about whether a nursing home resident receives end-of-life services provided by a hospice often turns on the beliefs and practices of staff members-- not physicians.
