August 27, 2019 | By CAPC Staff
In a recent study published in the Journal of the American Society of Nephrology, Yumeng Wen, et al., found that although there has been a significant increase in the use of palliative care services from 2010-2014 (among hospitalized patients receiving dialysis), it is still underused. Beyond this, specific minorities were found to be less likely to receive it when in the hospital, no matter the hospital sub-type.
