This chapter examines the role of volunteers in palliative care programs. It suggests that the integration of palliative care into the total treatment of life-threatening conditions is validation of the success of the hospice movement as a reform movement within medical care. The chapter argues that an effective and innovative volunteer program of services can only happen when an organization or agency is willing to invest resources and leadership in its success.
