The National Palliative Care Registry™ is a central resource for national data on the operational features of hospital palliative care programs. The Registry provides palliative care programs with comparative data on their operations, staffing, reach and key outcomes. The Registry is free and open to all palliative care programs across the continuum of service settings including hospitals, clinic and office-based practices, home health services and long-term care facilities.
