Access & Equity in Palliative Care with Sarah Nouri and Kara Bischoff
Join us in room N-217 (Nursing Building) for Department of Medicine Grand Rounds. Lunch will be provided.
Only 12% of the 50+ million people in the world who need palliative care annually are actually able to access it, according to the World Health Organization. At our next Medical Grand Rounds, we’ll be hearing from Sarah Nouri and Kara Bischoff to understand the drivers of disparities in access to palliative care services in the US and beyond. They will walk us through effective approaches to improve equity and inclusion in palliative care for patients experiencing chronic life-threatening illness.
