May 20, 2020 | By CAPC Staff
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
