Appendix A

Statement of Task

An ad hoc committee will plan, organize, and host a one-day public workshop to examine issues pertaining to integrating palliative care principles into the delivery of care for people of all ages with serious illness.

The workshop will feature invited presentations and panel discussions on topics that may include

  • Model programs and strategies that integrate palliative care principles into serious illness care delivery
  • Best practices of successful integrated palliative care delivery programs
  • Factors that influence care delivery models, such as geographic location; ability to mobilize community resources, including volunteers; adaptability to high- and low-resource environments; and diverse populations and settings of care
  • Evidence base and research needs to support and promote model programs of integrated serious illness care
  • Challenges to implementing and scaling model programs, including consideration of current workforce capacity and competencies; evaluation considerations, such as the potential benefits and limitations of quality measurement; and the challenges of aligning incentives and payment with new models of serious illness care

Palliative care is the interdisciplinary specialty focused on improving quality of life for people with serious illness and their families. This interdisciplinary care is provided by doctors, nurses, social workers, chaplains and others who work together with the patient’s other doctors to provide an extra layer of support. Such care is appropriate for people at any age and at any stage in a serious illness, and can be provided together with curative treatment to address clinical, emotional, psychosocial and spiritual concerns of the patient and their family. To better understand how the principles of palliative care can be integrated into the overall provision of care and services to those facing serious illness, the Roundtable on Quality Care for People with Serious Illness held a public workshop in April 2017. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
