Family Evaluation of Palliative Care (FEPC)

The Family Evaluation of Palliative Care (FEPC) is a post-death survey that captures family members’ perceptions about the quality of the palliative care that their loved ones received – whether that care was provided by a hospital-based consult service or by a hospice program offering palliative care. The questions on the FEPC survey are based on those in the Family Evaluation of Hospice Care (FEHC) survey, with wording modifications appropriate to palliative care service delivery.
