CAPC Releases New Palliative Care Referral Report
As the number of Americans living with serious illness has increased, so has the penetration of palliative care in U.S. hospitals. Based on need, not prognosis, palliative care teams provide complex communication and symptom management for people living with serious illness. This saves the primary clinician time, matches patient goals to treatment options, and better coordinates care. View the Palliative Care Referrals: 2018-2019 Snapshot, which includes the results of the most recent analysis of the top referrals to palliative care.
