Mapping Palliative Care in the State of Hawai‘i

  • Where is palliative care available in Hawai‘i?
  • How many people are receiving palliative care and in what settings?
  • What are the gaps and opportunities for improving palliative care?

This is the first time that we have done a statewide mapping project or calculated how much palliative care is being provided where and what the gaps are. View the recording
