End-of-Life Workgroup

The Delaware Health Care Commission established the End-of-Life Workgroup in November of 2015 to assess and make recommendations regarding end-of-life care and related issues in Delaware. The workgroup will conduct research to broaden understanding of palliative and end-of-life care issues and to prioritize areas for recommendations. The workgroup will develop a set of recommendations and options for consideration regarding:

  • Consumer outreach, awareness and education activities regarding palliative and end-of-life care and planning, including advanced care planning and the recently enacted DMOST legislation;
  • Professional outreach, training, support and education concerning the care of those with serious chronic and life-threatening conditions;
  • Enabling access to palliative care services and supporting the capacity in the health care system to provide palliative care services in home, community, hospice, skilled nursing facilities, hospital and any other relevant settings;
  • Other recommendations to support comprehensive health care services to Delawareans suffering from advanced and serious illnesses.

The workgroup will issue a report to the Health Care Commission providing recommendations and options on or before March 31, 2016.
