Palliative Care

Palliative care is medical care focused on the relief of suffering, and specialized support for the best possible quality of life for patients with serious illness and their families. It is provided simultaneously with all other appropriate medical treatment, including life-prolonging or curative care. A key benefit of palliative care is that it customizes treatment to meet the needs of each individual patient and may be provided at any time during a patient's illness, from the time of diagnosis and throughout the course of illness.

In recognition of its alignment with the Triple Aim of better patient care, better health outcomes, and reduced healthcare spending, HANYS advocates on behalf of its members to expand access to palliative care, and provides ongoing training and education.
