Serious Illness Care: A Strategic Discussion to Improve Care in Connecticut!

Join our longtime partners, the CT Advisory Council on Palliative Care and the CT Department of Public Health, on November 12th to explore opportunities to offer more comprehensive services in advance care planning, access to serious illness resources, and education of providers, patients and citizens of Connecticut. Through the CT Department of Public Health (DPH) Palliative Care Advisory Council’s work, they have identified gaps in access to quality palliative care for those with serious illness in the community. The purpose of this Serious Illness Summit is to get a pulse check on what others in the State see as gaps, strengths, and challenges in providing care to our seriously ill population, from pediatrics to geriatrics.

As a state-appointed council, the vision of this group is to ensure health care for everyone with serious illness in CT with accessible and in accordance with their goals, values, and preferences during all stages of life. By participating in this Serious Illness Summit, you can help develop strategies and potential solutions for those with serious illnesses.

How can we improve access to and quality of serious illness care in the State of Connecticut? The CT Advisory Council on Palliative Care welcomes your thoughts and insight!
