Access and Inclusion
The Inclusive Hospice Community
Reaching everyone in your community requires leadership and commitment to a strategic approach to meeting the specific needs of those in the communities you serve. The resources below will help providers improve access to end-of-life care through a variety of program development, education, outreach, and marketing strategies.
Continuum of Care
NHPCO’s Continuum of Care Assessment is designed to walk your organization through a process of determining the types of services available to people in your community and the settings in which they are offered. The Excel Workbook guides you through an 8-step process to guide your organization through this process.
NHPCO is committed to improving access to hospice and palliative care for children and their families – both nationally and internationally.
NHPCO’s Diversity Initiative seeks to increase access to hospice and palliative care services within diverse communities, especially African Americans, Latinos and other communities of color.
Veterans can receive hospice care through the Veteran’s Administration. The VA can purchase hospice services from community providers, including hospice care provided at home or in an institution as an inpatient.
