Innovative Models and Approaches for Palliative Care

Promoting Excellence in End-of-Life Care was a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation dedicated to long-term changes to improve health care for dying people and their families. Through the work of innovative demonstration projects and national workgroups we strived to address particular challenges to existing models of hospice and palliative care. The Promoting Excellence project was a time-limited project and no longer operates. The results of our work are archived by Growth House, Inc. for the ongoing benefit of the field.
