Palliative Care Quality Collaborative

The American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine (AAHPM) serves as the convener of the Palliative Care Quality Collaborative, where leaders from national organizations hosting three palliative care quality registries—the National Palliative Care Registry™ operated by the Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) and the National Palliative Care Research Center (NPCRC), the Global Palliative Care Quality Alliance (GPCQA), and the Palliative Care Quality Network (PCQN)—are working to develop a shared vision of how to use registries to improve quality in palliative care.  

The Collaborative seeks to unify and integrate data across the registries with the ultimate goal of supporting clinicians and programs to provide data-driven, high-quality, patient-centered care for people living with serious illness and their families. With funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Collaborative is developing a simple “no wrong door” access point to palliative care registries to advance the field.
