Thank you for letting everyone know the POLST form is updated and easier to use.

On 11/28, The US House of Representatives passed the Palliative Care and Hospice Education and Training Act (PCHETA). If passed in the Senate, this act will increase access to palliative and hospice care for people living with serious illness. Education, training, research, increases in the number of palliative care faculty in accredited programs, and public awareness campaigns are just a few of the very important initiatives that will improve access to palliative care and hospice services.

Simply put, palliative care benefits patients, health systems, and payers. One barrier to palliative services is healthcare provider comfortability with having the conversation. If you're a clinician who is in need of support, use #GOCCNJ 4Step iCare Plan Conversation Assistant to guide you through the process with patients. #goalsofcare #palliativeVisit www.goalsofcare.org/healthcare-professionals/www.managedhealthcareexecutive.com/news/immeasurable-benefits-palliative-cancer-care/page/0/1 ...
