The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) has released a state report, "Advancing Palliative Care for Adults with Serious Illness: A National Review of State Palliative Care Policies and Programs."

The report is a comprehensive review of how states are supporting the delivery of palliative care to adults and what they are doing to implement and enhance palliative care access and quality using a variety of policy levers.  

Major trends from the 50-state scan are highlighted, promising policy approaches are featured, and key considerations for states to enhance palliative care access and quality across settings are discussed.

The report, part of NASHP’s two-year palliative care initiative designed to develop critical state palliative care resources, is supported by The John A. Hartford Foundation.
