Health Affairs, the leading journal of health policy thought and research, is currently producing a periodic blog series on palliative care, health policy and health reform. Posts include adapted essays from the book, Meeting the Needs of Older Adults with Serious Illness: Challenges and Opportunities in the Age of Health Care Reform, edited by CAPC Director Dr. Diane E. Meier and Dr. Amy Kelley.
