2022 PaRC Retreat
The goal of the 2022 PaRC Retreat, Reimagining the ABCs of Serious Illness Research, is to foster discussion and create connections between faculty, students, staff, and community members that will drive forward palliative care research at the University of Pittsburgh.
The target audience for this symposium is faculty, students, staff, and community members that will drive forward palliative care research at the University of Pittsburgh.
Equitable access to high quality palliative care is essential to meet the needs of patients and families with serious illness. Pennsylvania is currently ranked 27th in the nation for palliative care access, with fewer services available in rural settings, for-profit-hospitals, and hospitals that treat a large portion of minority patients. Using the Pennsylvania Cancer Advisory Board/Plan for Oncology Palliative Care as an example, this panel will consider policy opportunities to expand access to palliative care, with a particular focus on the role of alternative payment models, workforce/training needs, telehealth, and public awareness.
