Abstract

The American healthcare system faces a crisis in optimizing care for people with serious, life-threatening illnesses. Many Americans lack basic knowledge of how palliative care services could be helpful, and unfortunately many healthcare providers lack sufficient training to meet the expanding palliative-care needs of our aging population. This article presents a framework for the development of population-based palliative-care education.
