Palliative Care Palliative Care in Every State
Palliative care improves the lives of seriously patients and their families, increases time spent at home by patients, and reduces the amount of time patients spend in hospitals.
In an effort to highlight effective state palliative care practices, the National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) released “A National Review of State Palliative Care Policies and Programs,” which describes state-specific goals for palliative care.
NASHP is working with legislators, regulators, and state Medicaid directors to develop plans and policies that overcome barriers to delivering palliative care.
