Breakout Session IV – Rural Innovation in Advanced Illness Care – Programs and Policy Opportunities

Thursday, October 10th

About the Session

What works in the city will work in rural, right? Wrong. When it comes to taking care of people with serious illness, one-size is not fits-all, and the unique mix of services and support available to meet the needs of patients and families in rural communities demand tailored strategies and solutions.

This session will highlight cutting-edge approaches to advanced illness care in rural communities taking place across the country. Expert panelists will discuss policy barriers and opportunities that impact rural care innovation.
