National hospice plans of Li Ka Shing Foundation (founded in 1998) Poor patients with advanced tumors are provided with physical, mental, social, and spiritual types of analgesic treatment and psychological support through home-based services. The quality of life status of patients with advanced cancer is considered the main outcome measure for palliative care services [30, 31]. CHS in hospices, as a special phase of palliative care, provides interprofessional and multidimensional care for patients with advanced cancer and their families [32,33,34].
