The Center to Advance Palliative Care (CAPC) has introduced a publicly accessible database that will track state policies on palliative care and related services.

The Palliative Care Policy GPS (GPS) database tracks the movement of relevant legislation and regulation across the 50 states, as well as U.S. territories, the Indian Health Service (IHS) and the Veterans Administration (VA).

“The ability to deliver high-quality palliative care to all people who are living with serious illness depends on the policy environment in which programs operate,” Stacie Sinclair, CAPC’s associate director for policy, told Hospice News. “Over the last decade, we have seen significant growth in the number of state-level policies to support palliative care. The Palliative Care Policy GPS is a tool to better understand opportunities and innovations that have occurred and identify lessons learned to inform the next wave of policymaking.”
