Yale Law School: Solomon Center and CAPC Launch Innovative Palliative Care Policy-Tracking Database

Yale Law School: Solomon Center and CAPC Launch Innovative Palliative Care Policy-Tracking Database. “The COVID-19 pandemic increased the demand for palliative care and exacerbated many of the challenges it addresses, straining hospitals and communities across the country. But tracking developments in policies and regulations across states has been difficult. States maintain their own data on legislation and regulations, with no centralized platform bringing together information from across the country. The Solomon Center for Health Law and Policy and the Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) aim to fill the gap with an innovative new initiative — the Palliative Care Policy GPS (GPS) — a publicly accessible and regularly updated database that tracks state policies on palliative care and related services.”
