Support Access to Patient-Centered and Family-Focused Palliative Care


  • ˜ Palliative care gives patients more control and helps take away some of the pain, fear and anxiety that many patients feel after diagnosis.  It is appropriate at any age and any stage of a serious illness.

  • ˜ Palliative care is provided by a team of doctors, nurses and other specialists who work together with a patient’s doctor to provide an extra layer of support.

  • ˜ ACS CAN supports establishing a state advisory council, consumer guide, and education program in Kentucky to increase palliative care initiatives and maximize their effectiveness.
