Senator Rosen: Remove Barriers to Hospice, Palliative Care
Posted on Monday, November 11, 2019 1:59 PM
Senator Rosen (D-NV) spoke at the National Hospice & Palliative Care Organization Interdisciplinary Conference and stressed that barriers need to be removed so people can access hospice and palliative care, especially the requirement for a six-month terminal prognosis.
“I know all too well that many individuals fall in the gap between disease treatment and end-of-life needs … People are living better, longer with chronic disease and even terminal disease. With my mother, it was a year. And so, who knows what can happen in a year?” Rosen said. “And that choice between saying, well, I have to give up [curative treatment], that can be frightening to families. I think we have to remove that obstacle, and we have to understand that you can do curative care and palliative care, and they can live together in that space.”
