May 20, 2020 | By CAPC Staff

New state-level reports providing information about palliative care access in your state, along with recommendations to improve it.

As more state-level champions and health officials explore opportunities to expand palliative care access, data on the current palliative care landscape can help prioritize efforts. CAPC’s new state-level reports provide information about palliative care access in your state, along with recommendations to improve it.

Each report includes state-specific information on:

  • The availability of hospital palliative care and comparisons to national and regional access 
  • Community palliative care
  • The number of certified palliative care clinicians 
  • Ways to advance palliative care access and quality in the areas of workforce, payment, clinician skill building, and public awareness, and resources to help you get started
