Hawaii State Palliative Care Summit April 25, 2020
Our very successful Palliative Care Summit brought key stakeholders together for an overview of the current state of palliative care in Hawai‘i, with focus on:
- What is working?
- What are barriers?
- What are the opportunities for expanding access?
The Palliative Care Summit on April 25, 2020 in Honolulu was the first of its kind in Hawai‘i.
A final report on the Summit can be downloaded here. This includes the results of the focus groups, surveys, input from the conference and next steps.
Our 121 participants represented a diverse array of stakeholders including health plans, health systems, hospices, higher education, state and county government, and non-profits (including AARP and American Cancer Society). Participants came from all 4 counties and included doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains, community advocates and administrators.
