Palliative care is suddenly everywhere.  From its roots in hospice, to the hospital, and now in the community, palliative care is rightly seen as a person-centered model that fits well with the transformation from traditional fee-for-service to value-based reimbursement.

This Briefing will provide an overview of the current legal and regulatory considerations for providing community-based palliative care and future opportunities to clarify what palliative care is, who can provide it, and what protections and guardrails exist for patients and providers. 

Please join Edo Banach, CEO of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization as he:

  • Defines palliative care and serious illness in relationship to hospice
  • Discusses regulatory and licensure considerations
  • Explores opportunities for further definition of palliative care services to ensure quality and expand access for seriously ill individuals and their families
