State policymakers are uniquely positioned to impact access, quality, and costs of care for high-need, high-cost populations. Many of these individuals have serious illnesses such as cancer, emphysema, and dementia. Palliative care has been shown to help individuals with serious illness better manage the symptoms and stressors of disease – improving care and reducing cost. These services are interdisciplinary, person- and family-centered, and can help people at any stage of a serious illness.
With funding from The John A. Hartford Foundation, NASHP will host a webinar to discuss state public policies and recommendations to support palliative care. The webinar will feature state leaders from Arizona who will speak about their policies, payment, and innovations to support palliative care.
