State-by-State Report Card on Access to Palliative Care

The State-by-State Report Card on Access to Palliative Care in Our Nation’s Hospitals provides an analysis of whether patients living with a serious illness in the United States are receiving equitable access to palliative care services in hospitals. The goal is both to inform and to help the public and policymakers increase the availability of high-quality palliative care for the millions of people in need.
