NASHP Resource Hub: State Strategies to Address Palliative Care

State health policy leaders see enormous value in palliative care to promote good outcomes and avoid costly and unnecessary and often unwanted treatments for the seriously ill. As states weigh how to maintain and provide services in the face of lower revenue and increased demand due to COVID-19, palliative care may be an important – and underutilized – resource. NASHP research found striking examples of palliative care implementation, but also significant untapped opportunities for states to improve palliative care access and quality. This continuously expanding resource, created with generous support from The John A. Hartford Foundation, provides concrete resources for states working to implement and expand high-quality palliative care.
