This chapter discusses some of the variables that influence how volunteers are able to function and interact in a tertiary referral hospital. It also suggests ways to establish and enhance palliative care volunteer programmes in hospital settings. There are a number of similarities and differences in working with different teaching hospitals of the same university. These are highlighted to show the range of options for volunteer coordinators to design and implement volunteer palliative care programmes that address the specific needs and cultures of their institutions.

Keywords:   volunteers, tertiary referral hospital, palliative care volunteer programs, volunteer coordinators, needs, cultures
